2004 BIG TEN CHAMPIONS 



Last season, Illinois captured its third Big Ten Championship in the past four years and 
fourth in the last seven years - and its first outright conference title since 1952. In the 
process, Fighting lllini Head Coach Bruce Weber became just the third coach in the histo- 
ry of the Big Ten Conference to win an outright Big Ten title in his first season with 
Illinois' march to the title. Illinois had to win its final 10 conference games to claim the 
Big Ten championship, including six-straight wins on the road. In the final week of the reg- 
ular season, Illinois posted a pair of dramatic road victories, first at Purdue in overtime to 
clinch a share of the title, and then at Ohio State to win the outright championship. 




"THE SHOT" 

With Illinois tied 79-79 at Purdue in overtime, Luther Head grabs 
an offensive rebound off a miss by Roger Powell and puts back a 
contested shot with the clock winding down. 



"THE AFTERMATH" 

The lllini bench and hundreds of UI fans who, decked out in 
orange, traveled to the game, erupt in celebration after Head's put- 
back goes in, giving the lllini an 81-79 victory.

HOME COURT ADVANTAGE 



Illinois owns the best home court record in the 
nation over the last five years with a 63-3 mark. 



When it's time to take the game on the court, 
Illinois has an outstanding home in Assembly 
Hall. The Hall has served as home to the 
Fighting Illini since its construction in 1963 
and in 1999 it became even better after a 
multi-million dollar construction project that 
brought the team a new locker room, state-of- 
the-art training room, a dining area and a new 
tunnel area to accommodate network television 
trucks and team buses. 

Illinois opened play at the Assembly Hall on 
March 4, 1 963 with a 79-73 victory over 
Northwestern. Since that first game, the Illini 
have racked up a 436-1 19 (.786) mark. Since 
1963, Illinois has sold out 158 games at the 
Assembly Hall, which seats 16,500. Illinois set 



an all-time attendance record on March 9, 
1996 when 16,863 fans jammed into the Hall 
to witness Lou Henson's final regular season 
game as head coach. In the past five seasons, 
Illinois has produced a 63-3 record at home, 
the best home court record in the nation over 
that time span. 

In addition to hosting the Fighting Illini, the 
Assembly Hall also holds performances for 
Broadway musicals, concerts and other shows. 
In the past few years, the WWE, Dave 
Chappelle, Ludacris, Ja Rule, Prince, Dave 
Matthews, Incubus, KISS, Matchbox 20 and 
the Dixie Chicks were some of the performers 
that took the stage at Assembly Hall. 




Illinois Basketball Centennial Season 



HOME COURT ADVANTAGE 



"The Assembly Hall can be an intimidating place. When you 
combine the Orange Krush, the lllini band and a very intense 

fan base, it makes for a great home court advantage. The suc- 
cess over the last five years with a 63-3 record backs it up." 

-Illinois Head Coach Bruce Weber 




NATIONAL ATTENDANCE LEADERS 



Each of the last 28 years, the Big Ten Conference has won the national 
attendance title for home games. In 2004, 2,122,586 total fans passed 
through the turnstiles for a 12,787 per game average. The Big Ten set the 
national record in 2000-01 as the League drew a record 2,342,022 fans, or 
13,383 per game. The Big Ten saw six of its programs rank among the top 
25 nationally, including ILLINOIS, which ranked ninth with an average of 
16,072 fans per game. 







Six times the lllini have played before a crowd of over 30,000 fans. On Dec. 6, 1997 the 
Illinois-Saint Louis game drew a crowd of 32,429 at the TWA Dome in St. Louis. It was 
the largest crowd to ever watch a basketball game in the state of Missouri and it ranks as 
the sixth-largest crowd to ever watch a Fighting lllini game.

Anderson, Kendall Gill and Steve Bardo, took on a celebrity 
team consisting of several former Illini basketball and football 
players. Proceeds from the game established a Flying Illini 
Basketball Scholarship.

Four who were in attendance included P.J. Bowman, Travis 
Smith, E.J. Manzke, Tyler Cottingham, Mark Shapland, Pat

SCHEDULING TOUGH OPPONENTS 

i As always, Illinois faces a challenging 
non-conference schedule, along with the 
rigorous Big Ten grind. The Illini sched- 
ule was rated among the toughest in the

level of competition will be tough again 
this season, with at least eight games 
scheduled against NCAA Tournament 
teams from a year ago. The nonconfer- 
ence slate features Gonzaga, Wake Forest, 
Arkansas, Georgetown, Oregon at the 
United Center in Chicago, the annual 
Braggin' Rights game against Missouri in 
St. Louis and the Las Vegas Holiday 
Classic. The Fighting Illini will appear on 
national television at least 1 1 times this 
season, with at least seven appearances on 
ESPN, one on ESPN2, and at least three 
national appearances on CBS. The Big 
Ten Tournament is scheduled for March 
10-13 at the United Center in Chicago. 



Over the last four seasons, Illinois' 
schedule has included match-ups with 
41 NCAA Tournament teams, two eventu- 
al national champions and seven Final 
Four teams, including six games against 
the two teams that played in the

An early June Sunday afternoon at Wrigley Field with the Cubs facing the Pittsburgh Pirates - what better day than that to celebrate the 
annual Illini Day at Wrigley Field? When Illini fans arrived they found the field's famous marquee congratulating the Fighting lllini on 
another Big Ten Championship. Prior to the game, head football coach Ron Turner threw out the ceremonial first pitch. Not to be out- 
shone, Coach Bruce Weber and Illini players Dee Brown, Roger Powell, Luther Head, James Augustine, Jack Ingram and Jerrance Howard 
took over the microphones during the seventh-inning stretch to lead the stadium in the singing of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame". 

St. Louis, where Illinois annually squares off with Missouri 
in the Braggin' Rights game, was equally welcoming, host- 
ing the Illini Family in May during a Cards/Cubs weekend. 

The Cardinals family rolled out the red carpet for 
the Illini last May during a Cards/Cubs weekend. 
Both Coach Weber and football head coach Ron 
Turner threw out the first pitch as over 2,000 die- 
hard Illini celebrated Illinois Day at Busch Stadium.

1999 honoree from Lincoln High School, followed Williams and Dee Brown became the fourth when the 2002 honoree 
enrolled at Illinois.. When McClain, Williams and Cook suited up together for the first game of the 1999-2000 season, 
Illinois became the first school to have three of the state's Mr. Basketballs on the roster at the same time.

One of the most dramatic and dignified traditions in college 
athletics is the performance of Chief Illiniwek at the 
University of Illinois. Since 1926, this symbol has stirred 
pride and respect in audiences at Memorial Stadium, the 
Assembly Hall and Huff Hall. 

Illiniwek (pronounced "ill-EYE-nih-wek") was the name of 
the loose confederation of Algonquin tribes that once lived 
in the region. The French changed the ending to "ois" in 
naming what became the state of Illinois. Illiniwek means 
"they are men" and former Illinois football coach Robert 
Zuppke is believed to have suggested calling the UI symbol 
Chief Illiniwek. 

In 1 926, Assistant Band Director Ray Dvorak conceived the 
idea of performing an American Indian dance during half- 
time of the Illinois vs. Pennsylvania football game in 
Philadelphia. Lester Leutwiler, a student interested in Indian 
lore, was chosen for the role. Leutvviler's performance, done 
in a homemade costume, was received so well that he was 
asked to continue his dance through the 1928 season. 

Webber Borchers, the second Chief Illiniwek, was the first to 
appear in authentic American Indian regalia. He initiated a 
campaign to raise money to replace his homemade outfit 
with an authentic one, but with the Depression on, he 
received just $15 dollars. However, a Champaign merchant 
stepped in to fund the rest and Borchers was off. 

He recalled: "In the summer of 1930, I went, at my own 
expense, to the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota. I 
hitchhiked out, called an Indian agent and explained my mis- 
sion. He and an Indian trader called in an older Sioux 
woman. She and two younger women made the suit." 

On Nov. 8, 1930, in New York's Yankee Stadium, Illinois 
faced Army in the seventh game of the season. It was there 
that Borchers made the first appearance of Chief Illiniwek in 
that outfit. Since then, five different authentic outfits have 
been used by Chief Illiniwek. The one used in performances 
now was purchased in 1983 from Sioux Chief Frank Fools 
Crow, and is topped by a headdress of turkey feathers. 

This year marks the 78th year of Chief Illiniwek.

ORANGE KRUSH 



"The votes have all been gathered and counted, and we 
have tabbed the Orange Krush - the rabid group of 
orange-shirted Illinois students - for our Fans-of-the-Year 

Award." -Rob Meich, CBS Sportsline.com (2000) 




Orange Krush is a 
student-run cheer- 
ing section of dedi- 
cated Mini stu- 
dents who love 
basketball. Krush 
membership has 
risen dramatically 
to well over 700 
screaming Illinois 
students sitting 
courtside, support- 
ing Head Coach 
Bruce Weber and 
the Illinois men's 
basketball team. 
Members arrive 
hours before the 
game to get the 
best seats on the 
floor on game day, 
with the line of 
Orange Krush stu- 
dents waiting for 
the doors to open 
extending nearly 
halfway around 
the Assembly Hall. 

Not only is the 
Orange Krush con- 
sidered the nation's 
premier basketball 
student section, 
but it is a charity 
foundation as well. 
All students inter- 
ested in member- 
ship in the Orange 
Krush must partici- 
pate in the Orange 
Krush 3-point shot program, which raises 
money for load charities. 

Founded in 1998, the Orange Krush 
Foundation (formerly Team Krush 
Foundation) is a University of Illinois stu- 
dent-run Foundation intent on improving rhe 
quality of life for the youth and young adults 
of the Champaign-Urbana and campus com- 
unity by providing financial support and 
mu ibuting community service to area not- 
to-r-prol it organizations. 



Since the inception of the Orange Krush 
Foundation six years ago, Krush members 
have raised and donated over 5600,000 to 
charity. The Orange Krush Foundation is 
almost entirely student-run and has donated 
funds to worthy causes including The 
Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Make-A- 
Wish Foundation, and Developmental 
Services Center. 



In addition, the 
Orange Krush 
Foundation creat- 
ed the Matthew 
Heldman 
Memorial 
Scholarship 
Fund, which 
honors Matthew 
Heldman, a 
point guard for 
the 1997-1998 
Big Ten 
Championship 
Team, who was 
tragically killed 
in a car accident 
in 1999. The 
fond, in his 
name, endows a 
scholarship for a 
future Illlni bas- 
ketball player. 
After five years, 
the Orange 
Krush fulfilled 
the $250,000 
commitment, 
and the fond is 
fully endowed. 

During the 2003 
season, the 
Orange Krush 
Foundarion 
announced the 
formation of rhe 
Rod Cardinal 
Sports Medicine 
Fund. This fund 
pays tribute to 
Rod Cardinal, who was the University of 
Illinois men's basketball athletic trainer for 30 
years. This endowment benefits all student 
trainers at the University of Illinois, which in 
turn benefits all varsity athletic teams.

linois Basketball Centennial Season 



ILLINOIS TRADITION 





100 Years of Illinois Basketball 

This season marks the 100th 
anniversary of basketball at the 
University of Illinois. Special 
events include a game with 
throwback jerseys, the announce- 
ment of a 20-player All-Century 
team, the release of a book enti- 
tled A Century of Orange and 
Blue, a centennial DVD, and many other promotions and activ- 
ities throughout the year. The centennial culminates Jan. 28-30, 
2005 when Illinois will host a reunion weekend for hundreds of 
former players, coaches and support staff members. A reunion 
celebration will be held at the Assembly Hall on Jan. 29 follow- 
ing Illinois' game vs. Minnesota. 

Alma Mater 

The Alma Mater statue is one of the most recognized landmarks 
on the Illinois campus. It was given to the university in 1928 by 
Illinois graduate and sculptor Lorado Taft. The inscription at 
the base of the statue reads "To dry happy children or the 
future, those of the past send greetings." The statue was moved 
to its present location in front of Altgeld Hall in 1962 and it 
now serves as a welcome at the entrance of the Quad. 

The Altgeld Bells 

The 132-foot tall Altgeld Hall bell 
tower is another well known campus 
landmark. The tower houses 1 5 bells 
that weigh in at a combined 1 5,625 
pounds. The bells, which were installed 
in 1920, chime on the hour and at fif- 
teen minute intervals automatically 
while other selections, including the UI 
Alma Mater 'Hail to the Orange,' are 
played at special concerts that take 

place during the course of rhe year, Quad Day, Homecoming 
week, the Illini Union's anniversary and Commencement week- 
end. 

The Flyin' Illini 

The 1989 Illinois basketball 
season was a fitting end to 
the '80s Belong to the Illini' 
decade. The 1 989 team, 
dubbed the Flyin' Illini, 
went 31-5, earned a No. 1 
seed in the Midwest Region and advanced to the Final Four. 
Illinois was the 14th winningest program in the nation in the 
1980s, posting a record of 233-90 (.721). Illinois enjoyed nine 
20-win seasons and finished in the top lour ol the Big Ten eight 
times. 





Hail to the Orange 

The Illinois Alma Mater and die centerpiece of the 
Marching Illini's "Three-In-One" halfnme performance is one 
tradition almost every Illini fan knows. While Chief Illiniwek 
stands at attention on the 50-yard line or at center court, alumni, 
students and diehard Illini fans alike link arms across the stands 



while singing the Alma Mater. 



Homecoming 



Homecoming, a tradition on just about every college campus in 
the United States, all began at the University of Illinois. 

The Homecoming celebration was conceived in 1909 by UI 
students OF. (Dab) Williams and W. Elmer Ekblaw, members 
of the Shield and Trident senior society. Homecoming is now 
coordinated by the Chancellor's Committee to Support 
Homecoming and the Student Alumni Association. The week- 
long celebration now includes campus decorations, a 
Homecoming 5K race, student service projects, "Lunch on the 
Quad," special "Comeback Guests," the traditional Friday night 
parade and pep rally on the UI campus and post-game social 
events. 

Orange Krush 

Orange Krush, one of the most recognizable student cheering 
sections in the nation, numbers over 700 screaming students 
courtside at all Illinois home games. In 1998, the group started 
the Orange Krush Foundation, and to date they have raised 
over $600,000. The Foundation supports one endowed scholar- 
ship, die Matthew Heldman Memorial Scholarship, for a men's 
basksetball player, in honor of the late point guard from Illinois' 
1997-98 Big Ten Championship Team, and the Rod Cardinal 
Sports Medicine Fund ($300,000) to benefit the Sports 
Medicine program at the UI, in honor of the long-rime Illini 
baskerball trainer. 

Think Orange. Wear Orange. 

Over the past four seasons, a sea of orange has appeared on 
Game Day at Assembly Hall as Illini fans dress in all orange. It 
all started on Feb. 6, 2001 , when a sold-out crowd responded ro 
'Paint the Hall Orange' night by showing up in all orange and 
cheering Illinois to a 77-66 win over Michigan State at home en 
route ro the 2001 Big Ten Chamionship. 

The Whiz Kids 

To this day the Whiz Kids 
remain one of the most sto- 
ried teams in Illinois history. 
In 1942-43, Art Mathisen, 
Jack Smiley, Andy Phillip, 
Gene Vance and Ken Menke came together to capture the 
attention of the entire nation while winning back-ro-back Big 
Ten titles and combining for a 35-6 record, 25-2 in the confer- 
ence. The team broke up on March 1, 1943, when all five 
starters headed to active duty in the armed forces.

STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING 



There is no question that physi- 
cal and mental dominance of an 
opponent is the goal of ever)' 
major basketball program in the country 
and a sports specific strengdi and condi- 
tioning program plays a vital part of the 
success of any basketball ream. Jimmy 
Price, the strength and conditioning coor- 
dinator for men's basketball, is committed 
to the physical and mental development 
of each and every Illini basketball player. 

"The bortom line is that 
the team which dominates 
its opponent physically and 
mentally is going to win 
the game," Price said. "It is 
our personal mission to put 
each player in the best pos- 
sible position to be success- 
fid on the basketball 
court." 

The strength and condi- 
tioning program is 
designed to make each stu- 
dent-athlete a better basket- 
ball player. There are many 
different contributing lac- 
tors to physical dominance 
in the sport of basketball, 
but the one consistent factor is the need 
for power production. Basketball athletes 
require a training program that has a 
main focus on the development of power. 
Incorporating the Olympic lifting tech- 
niques (clean, jerk, squats and variations 
of each) into training gives the student- 
athlete the ability to increase the power 
that a student-athlete can produce. 

The Basketball Strengrh and 
Condirioning program philosophies are 
based on 10 key principles: 

1. Ground Based Activities: Select lifting 
exercises and condirioning drills that 
apply force with the feet against the 
ground such as cleans, jerks and squats. 

2. Multiple Joint Actions: Multiple joint 
actions improve your arhletic perform- 
ance by coordinating simultaneous mus- 
cle contractions and movements. 

3. Three Dimensional Movements: Sport 
skills involve movements in three planes 
of space simultaneously: forward-back- 
ward, up-down, and from side-to-side. In 

;ngth training only free weights allow 
rs in three dimensions simulta- 

4. Train Explosively: The amount of 
force required tor a given activity is regu- 



lated by the use of two different types of 
motor unirs found in the body: fasr 
rwitch and slow twitch. These factors 
combined mean a fast twitch fiber can 
generate up to four times greater force 
that a slow twitch fiber, which is key to 
being explosive on the basketball court. 
5. Progressive Overload: Application of 
the load has crucial impact on maximiz- 
ing performance and keeping sport 
injuries to a minimum. Overload occurs 



when the body responds to training loads 
greater than normal. Intensity and vol- 
ume are the key factors used to progres- 
sively increase the overload. The use of 
heavier loads increases the intensity, 
which increases the tensile strenath of the 
muscle group being trained. 

6. Application and Periodization: Use 
different combinations of volume and 
intensity to generate different body 
responses. Volume and inrensity will be 
determined by the season of the sport. 

7. Split Routine: The split routine allows 
good recovery and rebuilding as well as at 
least two full days of recover)' from each 
exercise. 

8. Speed Day/Strength Day: Each train- 
ing day is designated by the type and 
velocity of the movements being per- 
formed. 

9. Train the Correct Energy System: The 
primary objecrive of conditioning is to 
improve your energy capacity and, diere- 
fore, improve your performance. This 
means that if your sport requires explo- 
sive movements, then the training should 
be tailored around this principle. 

10. Proper Sports Nutrition: This con- 
cept is of the utmost importance and is 
often most overlooked by student-ath- 
letes. Each and every variable in this area 




affects the outcome of the training day 
and the future of the next training ses- 
sion. Many student-athletes take this area 
for granted, which is a critical mistake 
because it is vital to completely replenish 
used energy stores. If this does not hap- 
pen, recover)' for the next workout will 
be compromised. 

"The use of these 10 principles is key in 
the process in developing explosive athlet- 
ic basketball players," Price said. 
"It is crucial for basketball stu- 
dent-athletes to maximize their 
explosive potential on the court. 
We think this type of training 
will have the greatest effect not 
only on the vertical jump but 
also the other vital skills that it 
takes to become a superior bas- 
ketball athlete." 



Working closely with athletic 
trainer Al Marrindale and the 
coaching staff is the most effec- 
tive way to implement and moni- 
tor an effecrive workout regime 
that best suits the individual 
needs of the student-athlete. 
Price uses a hands-on method of 
coaching for teaching proper 
techniques and lifting methods. 

"Toughness begins with practice and 
training. You cannot expect to be mental- 
ly tough in a game if you are not mental- 
ly tough during practice and training," 
Price said. 

Basketball Training Program Goals: 

• Maximize basketball athleticism by 
increasing the vertical jump. 

• Increase lateral speed and explosion. 

• Increase absolute strengdi. 

• Increase explosive power through 
Olympic lifting. 

• Increase sports specific agility. 

• Increase level of anaerobic basketball 
conditioning and mental toughness. 

• Strengthen joints and poorly developed 
muscle groups in order to prevent 
injuries. 

• Enhance nutritional habits to optimize 
lean body mass to fat mass rario. 

"It is a long and rigorous season," Price 
concluded. "The team that is in the best 
shape mentally and physically will rise 
above rhe competition at the end of the 
season. All of our training and practices 
are focused around one goal: winning in 
March and April."

machines under the supervision of a full-time strength and con- 
ditioning coach. 

"We feel that the strength and condition of our team is vital to 
competing at the highest level," Illinois head coach Bruce 
Weber said. "The Big Ten is a strong and physical conference 
and our players work very hard in the weight room to be pre- 
pared for each game. If you look over time in this League, the 
strongest, toughest and most explosive teams are usually the 
most successful."

browser MosaicTM, which revolutionized 
the use of the World Wide Web. Students 
have access to thousands of computer ter- 
minals in classrooms, residence halls, and 
campus libraries for use in classroom 
instruction, study, and research. 

Students and scholars find the University 
an ideal place to conduct inter- and multi- 
disciplinary research. The most visible 
example of the University's commitment 
to such study is the Beckman Institute for 
Advanced Science and Technology, where 
eighteen research groups from sixteen 
University departments work within and 
across diree broadly defined themes: bio- 
logical intelligence, human-computer 
intelligent interaction, and molecular and 
electronic nanostructures. 

The University has a fundamental com- 
mitment to undergraduate education. 
Over 28,000 undergraduate students are 
enrolled in nine undergraduate divisions, 
which together offer some 4,000 courses in 
more than 150 fields of study. The divi- 



sions are the College of 
Agricultural, Consumer and 
Environmental Sciences; 
College of Applied Life 
Studies; College of Business; 
College of Communications; 
College of Education; 
College of Engineering; 
College of Fine and Applied 
Arts; College of Liberal Arts

of Aviation. 

Undergraduate admission is 
~ ~ — — ■"""* highly selective. In a typical 
freshman class, students in the middle 
50% had ACT scores between 25 and 30 
and ranked between the 83rd and 96di 
percentiles of their high school graduating 
classes. 

The University enrolls over 9,000 graduate 
and professional students in more than 
100 disciplines. It is among the top five 
universities in number of earned doctor- 
ates awarded annually in the United States. 

Also integral to die University's mission is 
a commitment to public engagement. 

Each year about 65,000 Illinois residents 
participate in scores of conferences, insti- 
tutes, credit and noncredit courses, and 
workshops presented on campus and 
statewide. The University's Cooperative 
Extension Service comes into contact with 
nearly two million Illinois residents, pro- 
viding 4-H, nutrition intervention, and 
other programs in rural and urban settings. 

Research and class projects take students 
and professors outside their classrooms and 
laboratories to share expertise and techni- 
cal support with Illinois farmers, manufac- 
turing firms, and businesses. In a typical 
year, student volunteers log more than

60,000 volunteer hours in blood drives, 
day care centers, prisons, senior citizen 
centers, and tutoring programs. 

Another prime indicator of the 
University's excellence is the success of 
its alumni: 13 alumni are Nobel laure- 
ates and another 1 8 have won Pulitzer 
Prizes. 

A major center for the arts, the campus 
attracts dozens of nationally and inter- 
nationally renowned artists each year to 
its widely acclaimed Krannert Center 
for the Performing Arts. Designed by 
alumnus Max Abramovitz, an architect 
of New York City's Lincoln Center, the 
facility has four indoor theaters and an 
outdoor amphitheater. Together, they 
host more than 350 performances each 
year. The University also supports two 
major museums: the Krannert Art 
Museum and Kinkead Pavilion, second 



only to the Art Institute of Chicago 
among Illinois public art museums; and 
the Spurlock Museum, a museum of 
world history and culture. 

Other major facilities include the mul- 
tipurpose Assembly Hall (16,500 seats), 
which hosts concerts, convocations, 
theater, and sporting events; Memorial 
Stadium (70,000 seats), site of Big Ten 
Conference football games; and the 
Intramural-Physical Education 
Building, one of the largest recreational 
facilities of its kind on a university 
campus. 

Located in east central Illinois in the 
twin cities of Urbana and Champaign 
(combined population 100,000), the 
University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign is the state's flagship public 
university. 





Illinois' most recent graduates wait in long lines to have their picture taken at

Coach Weber Has Been A Part Of 22 

Postseason Appearances And 10 

Conference Championships During 

His 25-Year Coaching Career. 



It took just one season for Bruce Weber 
to etch his name in the Big Ten and 
Illinois record books after leading the 
Fighting Illini to their first outright Big 
Ten title in 52 years during the 2003-04 
season. In leading his young team that 
featured just one senior on the roster, 
Weber became just the third coach in 
the history of the Big Ten to win an 
outright title in his first season at a 
school. 

Illinois had to win 10 straight to end 
the regular season to claim the champi- 
onship, including six-straight wins on 
the road. It marked the first time since 
1956 that the Illini won at least 10 con- 
ference games in a row. 

Weber joins Wisconsin's Guy Lowman 
in 1918 and Minnesota's Bill 
Musselman in 1972 as the only league 
coaches to win an outright title in their 
first seasons. He is also just the 1 1th Big 
Ten coach to at least share a Big Ten 
title in his first season. Weber also 
became just the sixth coach in the con- 
ference since 1951 (when Michigan 
State joined the league) to defeat every 
other conference team in his first sea- 
son. 

Illinois 1 26 wins in 2003-04 tied the 
third winnineest season in school histo- 
ry, and Weber also led Illinois to its 
third Sweet Sixeen appearance in the 



past four years with NCAA Tournament 
victories over Murray State and 
Cincinnati. 

Weber took charge as the 16th Fighting 
Illini men's basketball coach on April 
30, 2003, after spending the previous 
five seasons as head coach at Southern 
Illinois University. He led the Salukis to 
the top of the Missouri Valley 
Conference with championships in 
2002 and 2003 before continuing the 
trend at Illinois where the Illini have 
now won four Big Ten titles in the last 
seven seasons. 

Weber came to Champaign-Urbana 
after compiling a 103-54 (.656) record 
in five seasons as the head coach at 
Southern Illinois University. He gained 
18 years of experience in the Big Ten 
Conference as an assistant at Purdue 
under Gene Keady, helping the 
Boilermakers to six Big Ten champi- 
onships and 17 postseason appearances. 

Energetic and personable, Weber has 
appeared on numerous national radio 
and television programs on networks 
such as ESPN, Fox Sports and CNN. 
Fame and success have not changed 
Weber. He remains generous and hum- 
ble. On road trips, no job is beneath 
him as he often helps team managers 
load the bus or passes out drinks and 
sandwiches to his players and stall.

HEAD COACH BRUCE WEBER 




"People talk about dream jobs. For me, I had a dream of being a 

Big Ten head coach, and this is that opportunity - not only to be a 

Big Ten coach, but also to be in a program that I believe is one of 

the best in the country, one that has a chance to win a national 

championship. That's a mouthful, but I believe it can be done." 

-Illini Head Coach Bruce Weber 



Weber's warm personality has made him a popular fig- 
ure in the state of Illinois, as he is a frequent guest at 
civic clubs, booster club meetings, golf outings and 
many other speaking engagements. 

In his five seasons at SIU, Weber took the Saluki pro- 
gram to the top or the Missouri Valley Conference, win- 
ning league titles in 2002 and 2003. He posted records 
of 28-8 and 24-7 in his last two seasons, leading the 
Salukis to back-to-back NCAA Tournament appear- 
ances including a run to the Sweet Sixteen in 2002 with 
wins over Texas Tech and Georgia at the United Center 
in Chicago. Weber's 52 wins combined in 2002 and 
2003 ranked among the Top 5 in the nation. His .689 
(62-28) winning percentage in MVC play ranked 12th 
in the long history of the league. Weber earned 
Missouri Valley Conference Coach-of-the-Year honors 
following the 2003 season. 

The trademark of the Bruce Weber-led teams has been 
fundamentally sound defense, holding opponents to 40 
percent shooting from the field in 2002 and 2003 and 
to 42 percent this past season. On the offensive end, the 
Salukis averaged 75.5 points in 2002 and 74.5 points 
last season, while Illinois led the Big Ten in scoring this 
past season, averaging 72.8 points. 

At the age of 48, Weber has 25 years or coaching experi- 
ence at the collegiate level with one season at Western 
Kentucky under Ready before moving with the long- 
time Boilermaker coach to West Lafayette the following 
year. He was named the Southern Illinois head coach 
prior to the 1998-99 season. In his one season at 
Western Kentucky, the Hilltoppers won the Ohio Valley 
Conference and advanced to the NCAA Tournament. 
In his 18 years at Purdue, the Boilermakers won six Big 




Last season, Bruce Weber became 
just the third coach in the 99-year 

history of the Big Ten Conference 
to win an outright Big Ten 

Championship in his first season.

RICHMOND ENDOWMENT 



llfaff.!' 



Richmonds Endow Basketball Coach's Position 




The University of Illinois 
at Urbana-Champaign has 
been close to Jack Richmond 
all his life. 

The Champaign resident, U of I grad- 
uate, retired businessman, is a longtime 
benefactor to his alma mater. A lifelong 
Fighting Mini fan. Jack Richmond and" his 
wife, Marge, endowed the salary of the 
men's basketball head coach position with 
a gift of $2 million. This gift significantly 
increased their previous seven-figure com- 
mitment to the Division of Intercollegiate 
Athletics. 

Their generosity extends across the U- 
C campus. In May 2004, Jack made a six- 
figure gift creating the Jack C. Richmond 
Scholarships for the benefit of student ath- 
letes who are members of the men's varsity 
gymnastics team. In September 2003, the 
couple made a $1.5 million gift that will 
name and dedicate the Richmond Family 
Gallery, the first floor reception area of the 
planned University or Illinois Alice 
Campbell Alumni Center. The Richmonds 
also provided a $2 million gift to the 
College of Communications in 1998 that 
created the Richmond Journalism 
Teaching Studio, a broadcast facility for 
journalism students in Campbell Hall for 
Public Telecommunication. The 
Richmond Studio and the Richmond 
Family Gallery honor Jack and Marge as 
well as the memory of Jack's parents, 
Arthur Dean and Mildred Hummel 
Richmond. 

"The Richmond Family Endowed 
Men's Head Basketball Coach" is another 
example of the generations-long benevo- 
lence of the Richmond family. Jack, whose 
ancestors helped settle Champaign 
County, said his parents contributed to the 
U of I for the construction of Memorial 
Stadium. Seven-year-old Jack was on hand 
for the dedication of Memorial Stadium 
on Oct. 18, 1924, a day forever highlight- 
ed by Red Grange's five touchdowns dur- 
ing; an Illinois romp over top-ranked 
Michigan. Jack has been hooked on 
Fighting Mini sports ever since. 

But before Jack could attend the 
U of I, he learned a few lessons in life. 
The Richmonds were devastated by die 
Great Depression, losing their significant 
holdings of farmland and other assets. The 
dramatic change in lifestyle had a pro- 
found effect on Jack. 

It also made him further appreciate 
the University of Illinois. 

His years at the U of I were greatly 



satisfying. He was a member of Phi 
Gamma Delta social fraternity and was 
active in sports. As a freshman gymnast 
who earned his numerals with the U of I 
team, Jack said he broke his sternum fol- 
lowing a dismount from the flying rings. 
No longer able to compete as a gymnast, 
he focused his attention on weight train- 
ing. At that point, weights weren't popular 
and were nonexistent at the U oil. 

"I always thought that weight train- 
ing, if done 
properly, would 
help athletes. 
Nobody 

believed me," he 
said. 

Still, he 
convinced 
Seward Staley, 
director of the 
U of I School of 
Physical 
Education, to 
purchase a set of 
Olympic 
weights. A small 
but dedicated 
weight lifting 
team was 
formed, and the 
sport spread to 
first to the 
intramural level 
and then was 
adopted by the 
physical educa- 
tion department 
as a P.E. course. 
Today, the 
benefits of weight training are widely rec- 
ognized and top-notch equipment is readi- 
ly available across campus. Jack smiles and 
says, "I feel like I was 60 years ahead of 
my time." 

And those muscles paid off for Jack, 
who was a railroad worker, wrecking crew- 
member, meat truck driver, corn detassler, 
lifeguard, bouncer and even a model for 
the U of I art school to pay for his educa- 
tion. He graduated in 1943 with a bache- 
lor's degree in agriculture. 

He followed up his four years of 
ROTC at the U of I with a tour in the 
Army. Then he put his degree to work 
when he joined the U.S. Department of 
Agriculture's Soil Conservation Service as a 
county farm planner, opening district 
offices in Macon County and Clark 
County. 

Later, Jack was tecruited by a former 
member of the U of I gymnastics team as 
a salesman for Marchant Calculators. His

capacity to sell was exceptional, and he 
soon had clients from area grain elevator 
operators to the U of I. He remained with 
Matchant, which was acquired by Smith 
Corona and became known as SCM 
Corp., until 1972. Then he was ready to 
embark on a new course — the stock mar- 
ket. 

He had dabbled in the market since 
1955, but by the early 1970s he had the 
time and resources to become more active 
in the stock mar- 
ket. He enjoyed 
success in this 
realm as well, 
and was more 
than willing to 
shate. A donor 
since 1965, his 
generosity to the 
U of I increased 
significantly over 
the years. Jack 
and his mother 
became members 
of the Ptesidents 
Council in 1976 
and Marge 
became a mem- 
ber in 1990. The 
Richmonds are 
lifetime mem- 
bers of the 
Alumni 
Association as 
well. 

Always 
interested in ath- 
letics at the U of 
I, Jack and 
Mildted Richmond had made a $1 million 
commitment to the Athletic Department 
in 1981. He became an honotary member 
of the I Man's Association and has been a 
member and former president of the Mini 
Quarterback Club since 1955. He also 
joined the Rebounders Club shortly after 
former head coach Lou Henson founded 
it. Jack is also a life member of the 
Fighting Mini Scholarship Fund. 

The Richmond name will be forever 
associated with athletics at the U of J 
through the endowment of the men's bas- 
ketball head coach position. Jack said he 
hopes his gift ensures success for the 
Fighting Mini basketball program tor 
future generations through the Richmond 
Family Endowed Men's Head Basketball 
Coach. 

For lifelong Mini fan and generous 
supporter Jack Richmond, it just doesnt 
get any better.

2004 BIG TEN CHAMPIONS 



THE FIGHTING ILLINI 




2004-05 OUTLOOK 



The top 10 scorers return from the 2004 
Big Ten championship squad, and expec- 
tations for the 2005 season are flying 
high in Champaign-Urbana. In fact, sev- 
eral preseason prognosticators have the 
Fighting Illini standing alone April 4 in 
St. Louis. Bruce Weber begins his second 
season at the helm after leading the Illini 
to their first outfight conference title in 
52 years with a 13-3 mark last season. 
Illinois is in a period of unprecedented 
success with four Big Ten titles in the last 
seven seasons, including three in the last 
four years. The Fighting Illini advanced 
to the Sweet Sixteen in the 2004 NCAA 
Tournament and are looking for more in 
2005. 

"Last year was such a transition season; 
now that's over," said Weber. "We fought 
through it and had success at the end. 
Now there is no feeling-out period. Here 
it is. We know our goal. We know each 
other, and now we're going after it. Our 
focus is a little different. It's not selling 
our players on a new system. We have 
our system, now we have to perfect it so 
we can play on in late March and April. 
The kids are much more focused than a 
year ago." 

When assessing Weber's squad, one has 
to start with the backcourt or juniors 
Dee Brown and Deron Williams, and 
senior Luther Head. The Illini back- 
court enters the season rated among the 
best in the nation by several preseason 
publications. Williams is coming off a 
breakout season where he was named 
First-Team All-Big Ten and is a presea- 
son Ail-American entering his junior 
season. Brown used a strong stretch run 
to earn Second-Team All-Big Ten and 
honorable-mention All-America honors 
in 2004. Head made one of the key 
plays of the 2004 season at the end of 
an overtime victory at Purdue that 
clinched a share of the Big Ten title, and 
scored in double figures in eight of 10 
games to end the regular season. Brown 
illiams are both on the Wooden 
ison list of Top 50 players. 



"When people compare our backcourt to 
some of the best around the country, the 
element that might separate us is Luther 
Head, kind of the x-factor," Weber said. 
"They complement each other well. We're 
able to play them together against any- 
body. Then, to solidify that, is (the fact) 
that the current sophomore class has been 
through the wars and can help provide 
quality depth." 

Williams, a preseason All-America pick 
by Playboy Magazine, led the Big Ten in 
assists with an average of 6.2, led the 
Illini in scoring at 14.0 points per game 
and ranked second in the Big Ten in 
assist/turnover ratio. The 6-foot-3-inch 
Williams enters his junior season as one 
of the top point guards in the nation and 
has proven himself as perhaps Illinois' top 
defensive player. 

"The thing people noticed most about 
Deron last year was his shooting," Weber 
said. "He can make an even bigger jump 
this year by becoming more consistent. 
His biggest step is the consistency factor 
and maturity level, and not following up 




a great game with a below-average game." 

Brown, playing the final month of the 
2004 season with a painful stress fracture, 
finished second on the team with 13.3 
points per game and 4.5 assists per game. 
He ranked third in the Big Ten in 
assist/turnover margin and led the Illini 
with 51 steals while ranking fourth on 
the team in rebounding at 3.7 boards per 
game. The 6-foot Brown, nicknamed the 
"One-Man Fastbreak," spent much of the 
summer recovering from the stress frac- 
ture and hopes to enter the season in 
good health. 

"I don't think people appreciate how 
much pain he played through last year," 
Weber said. "The last 10 games of last 
season when he bought in, started work- 
ing on his game a little more and figured 
out what things in his game he needed to 
start working on, his numbers were pretty 
incredible. That was a key to our success. 

"One thing we are missing from last year 
is Jerrance Howard and his leadership. To 
fans, Dee and Deron are leaders, but 

internally, they need to lose themselves 

to the team and lead." 

Head enters his senior campaign after 
averaging 1 1.0 points and 2.6 assists per 
game. He combines with Williams, 
Brown and sophomore Rich McBride to 
give the Fighting Illini an outstanding 
three-point shooting attack. 

One of the most athletic guards in the 
nation, Head gives Weber great flexibili- 
ty on the perimeter with his defensive 
ability. 



R "The first three weeks of practice last 
i year he was better than Dee and Deron 
before stepping back a bit," Weber said. 
"But he made big strides as the season 
went along and there is no reason he 
can't be mentioned in the same breath as 
the other two. He needs to play at a 
high level the entire season. I don't 
think he realizes how good he is." 



52 



linois Basketball Centennial Season 



2004-05 OUTLOOK 




McBride showed his ability to impact 
games by coming off the bench to knock 
down six three-pointers and score 22 
points in a tough win over Memphis at 
the Assembly Hall in December. McBride 
worked hard in the off-season to improve 
his ball-handling skills and adds great 
depth to a strong position for the Illini. 

"Rich's best attribute is shooting, but now 
he has to add some element to advance 
his game," Weber said. "He really worked 
on handling the ball more and he has a 
good feel lor the game. His athleticism 
improved over the summer and he had 
the biggest improvement on the team in 
the vertical jump." 

Freshman Calvin Brock adds another ter- 
rific athlete to the mix on the perimeter. 
The 6-4 swing guard Irom Chicago 
Simeon High School was named the 
Chicago Player of the Year as a senior. 

"We'll have to wait and see how much 
Calvin can contribute this season, but he 
is very competitive, he doesn't back 
down, and he has °;ood size and athleti- 



cism," Weber said. 

Sophomore Brian Randle is com- 
ing oft shoulder surgery after the 
2004 season and adds great size 
and athleticism to the perimeter. 
The 6-7 swing forward earned 
nine starts as a freshman and shot 
57 percent from the field. Randle 
is a terrific leaper and has shown 
great potential as a defender. 

"It was too bad for him that he 
had to miss the summer with his 
shoulder, because he had figured 
out what he needed to work on 
to raise the level of his game," 
Weber said. "Being out three or 
lour months, he was frustrated. 
He brings athleticism and defense 
that maybe nobody else on our 
team can bring to the court. He 
can rebound, he can run the 
court, and he just needs to 
improve on things he could have worked 
on over the summer like strength and 
skills." 

Senior Roger Powell, Jr., was third on the 
team in scoring last season at 1 1.6 points 
per game and is looking forward to a big 
final campaign. A mismatch for most 
teams, Powell uses his strength and post- 
up ability against smaller defenders, and 
his quickness and ability to shoot outside 
against bigger opponents. Powell ranked 
second on the team in rebounding last 
year at 5.0 boards per game and shot 
59.5 percent from the field. 

"I loved the way Roger played against 
Duke in the NCAA Tournament last sea- 
son," Weber said. "He took the ball out 
and hit a couple of jumpers, he took the 
ball to the basket, he rebounded, he bat- 
tled good players, which is what he needs 
to do in all games. He can use his 
strength and explosiveness on the inside 
and when he has bigger people guarding 
him, he can take them outside and use 
his quickness and athleticism. He's really 
improved his shooting from last year and 




has made some strides going into his sen- 
ior season." 

Junior James Augustine and seniors Nick 
Smith and Jack Ingram return as Weber's 
most-experienced interior players. The 6- 
10 Augustine averaged 9.6 points and a 
team-leading 7.3 rebounds per game last 
year, and spent much of the summer 
working on improving low-post moves 




and his jump shot. Augustine led the 
Illini by making 63.5 percent of his field 
goal attempts and totaling 42 blocked 
shots. 

"I said last year that our post play and 
how much they improved would deter- 
mine how lar we would go," Weber said. 
"James needs to be a consistent force. I 
don't think he realizes how good he is. 
He has to play with the confidence that 
he's a good player. Nick and Jack both 
had good stretches of play last season. If 
we can get to the point where we can get 
into a rotation with those guys and not 
lose anything, we can be in pretty good 
shape. They all give a little different look. 
Roger has the athleticism, James can run 
and jump, Nick is big, but he also can

shoot very well, and Jack has a big body 
and a good feel for the game. They all 
give you something different and you can 
keep coming at people. You hope that 
Warren Carter, Brian Handle and Shaun 
Pruitt can be added to that list." 

At 7-2, the tallest player in 100 years of 
Mini basketball. Smith averaged 6.8 
points and 3.2 rebounds last year. An 
outstanding shooter, Smith gained 20 
pounds during the summer and is look- 
ing forward to an outstanding senior sea- 
son. 

"He had some real good games during 
the season last year," Weber said. "His 
body is way better than last year. He's 
been able to keep the weight on while 
conditioning. There are few players his 
height who can step out and shoot as wel! 
as he can." 

Ingram earned more playing time as the 
season went along and became an impor- 
tant front-line player off the bench. The 
6-10 senior shot 57 percent from the 
field and helped give the Mini an experi- 
enced physical presence off the bench. 




"Jack had a good finish last year and 
accepted his role," Weber said. 
"Once he accepted his role he began 
having success. He's got a big body, 
he is intelligent and those are things 
he needs to bring to our team." 

Sophomore Warren Carter has 
shown great promise and had a solid 
trip to Europe during the Big Ten 
Conference Tour. An athletic 6-9 
forward, Carter is looking to earn 
more minutes in 2004-05 after aver- 
aging 1.2 points per game as a fresh- 
man. 

"Warren needs to continue working 
on his strength as he learns what it 
takes to play at this level," Weber 
said. "He's just now starting to fig- 
ure out how he can use his athleti- 
cism and his skills to help us. The 
trip to Europe helped and the 
coaches said he was one of the top 
players on that team. So, I hope that 
experience will carry over to our season. 

Freshman Shaun Pruitt was considered 
the best high school big man in the state 
of Illinois as a senior and enters his first 
season expecting to add depth to an expe- 
rienced front line. 

"He's got a good body and has a knack of 
knowing how to score," Weber said. 
"Strength and conditioning are what will 
determine how quickly he will come 
along and contribute." 

Illinois again played one of the nation's 
toughest schedules last season and has 
several traditional powers on the 2004-05 
slate as well. The Mini take on Gonzaga, 
Wake Forest, Arkansas, Georgetown, 
Oregon and Missouri, as well as 
Valparaiso and Cincinnati in the Las 
Vegas Holiday Classic during the non- 
conference portion of the schedule before 
moving into the always-tough Big Ten. 

"We will play a variety of styles from all 
over the country," Weber said. "We have 




someone from each of the power confer- 
ences on our schedule. We're playing in 
several different venues, which should 
hopefully prepare us for postseason play. 
We'll be tested early. We get a Top 5 team 
in the first two weeks of the season, but 
it's certainly not the end of our season. 
The kids need to realize it is a marathon 
and we need to make strides to be there 
at the end of the year." 

The Fighting Mini and their fans have 
turned the Assembly Hall into maybe the 
toughest road arena in the nation. Illinois 
has posted a 63-3 home record over the 
past five seasons, the best home court 
record in the nation over that period. 

"The Assembly Hall is very intimidating 
for opponents," Weber said. "If you look 
at the record over the last five years, yes, 
Illinois has had good players, hopefully 
good coaches, but at the same time, other 
places have had that as well. But, the 
combination with very fanatic fans, great 
students right on the court, the openness 
of the arena, has made it a very rough 
place for opponents ro visit.

Celebrating 100 Years of Fighting lllini Basketball

2004 BIG TEN CHAMPIONS 



YEAR IN REVIEW 




2003-04 SEASON IN REVIEW 



The Bruce Weber Era of Illinois 
Basketball began with a bang in 
2003-04. Weber led his squad to Illinois' 
first outright Big Ten title in 52 years with 
a 26-7 overall record, 13-3 in the Big Ten. 

The Fighting Illini advanced to the Sweet 
Sixteen for the third time in the last four 
seasons. The 26 victories tied for third 
most in school history. 

Illinois won its last 10 games of the regu- 
lar season, including six road games, to 
clinch the Illini's third Big Ten title in four 
seasons. A dramatic overtime victory at 
Purdue clinched a share of the title in one 
of the most exciting games in Illini histo- 
rv. Luther Head made the winning basket 
after rebounding a blocked shot with just 
seconds remaining. 



Illinois swept past Murray State and Cincinnati in the first two rounds 
of the NCAA Tournament before dropping a tough 72-62 decision to 
Duke in the Sweet Sixteen. The victory over fourth-seed Cincinnati was 
Illinois' first-ever win over a higher-seeded team in the tournament. 

Sophomore Deron Williams earned first-team All-Big Ten honors after 
leading the Illini in scoring at 14.0 points per game, and leading the Big 
Ten with 6.2 assists per game. Running mate Dee Brown was named sec- 
ond-team All-Big Ten after averaging 13.3 points. Junior Roger Powell 
and sophomore James Augustine both earned All-Big Ten honorable 
mention honors. 

A key point in the early season came on Dec. 13 when the Illini posted 
a 74-64 win over Memphis. Illinois had lost badly to Providence in New 
York, and Williams suffered a broken jaw in the next game against 
Marvland-Eastern Shore. The Illini pulled togethet in the win over 
Memphis, held on to defeat llth-ranked Missouri in St. Louis and 




downed Illinois-Chicago at the United 
Center before Williams returned in heroic 
fashion during an overtime win over Illinois 
State on Jan. 3. 

An early home loss to Purdue and losses on 
the road to Northwestern and Wisconsin 
pushed Illini backs to the wall for any hopes 
of a Big Ten title. A victory over Michigan 
following the loss to the Badgers ignited a 12- 
game winning streak until the championship 
game of the Big Ten Tournament. 

Four of the final five games of the regular sea- 
son were road games at Penn State, Iowa, 
Purdue and Ohio State. Orange became the 
fashion during the unlikely streak, as the six- 
game Big Ten road game winning streak was 
Illinois' longest since 1956. 



Ilinois entered the NCAA Tournament as a 
No. 5 seed and promptly ran over Murray State by a score of 72-53, set- 
ting up a second-round game against Cincinnati. In perhaps the most 
dominating Illini performance of the season, Illinois posted a 92-68 vic- 
tor)' over the Bearcats. The Illini shot 64 percent from the field, includ- 
ing 58 percent (11-19) from three-point range in winning. Williams led 
all scorers with 31 points. 

Deron Williams was named the 2004 Most Valuable Player. Jerrance 
Howard was named the Kenny Battle Most Inspirational Player. Dee 
Brown won the Matto Award. Luther Head was named Most Improved 
Player. Roger Powell won the Lou Henson Courage Award. Nick Smith 
was the team's top tree throw shooter and James Augustine won the 
Illini Rebounders Award. 

Howard was the only senior on the squad and ended his career with 
three Big Ten Championships and one Big Ten Tournament 
Championship on his resume.

Game #1 

#12 Illinois 94 
Western Illinois 66 

Nov. 22, 2003 

Assembly Hall, Champaign, III. 

Bruce Weber was nervous when he walked into the 
Assembly Hall for his first game as Illinois coach. 

"You're kind of getting a little antsy because you 
don't know what's going to happen, you're a little bit 
short-handed and crazy things happen," Weber said, 
referring to his depleted team. 

But the I2th-ranked Illini had little trouble beating 
Western Illinois 94-66 despite having only nine players 
available. Luther Head, Aaron Spears and Rich 
McBride spent the game on the bench, serving suspen- 
sions for violating team rules. 

Dee Brown scored 23 points to lead five Illini play- 
ers in double figures as they built a 37-9 lead in the first 
14 minutes and were never threatened. 

Western (0-3) put together a 12-2 run in the closing 
minutes of the first halt, but that was the most pressure 
it could put on the Illini all night. 

But the Illini started the second half with a 16-6 run 
to push a 49-28 halftime lead to 65-34. They were able 
to keep the spread at about 30 points throughout the 
second hall. 

Roger Powell added 14 points, Nick Smith 13 and 
James Augustine 12 for the Illini, who hit 52 percent of 
their shots and were 7-for-22 from behind the 3-point 
line. Deron Williams added 1 1 points, nine rebounds 
and eight assists, nearly a triple-double. 

Augustine added 13 rebounds, a career high, and the 
Illini extended their Assembly Hall winning streak to 
18 in a row.

Game #2 

#12 Illinois 93 
Mercer 61 

Nov. 26, 2003 

Assembly Hall, Champaign, III. 

Dee Brown scored 18 points and Roger Powell 
added 16 points and 10 rebounds to lead No. 12 Illinois 
to a 93-61 Wednesday night over Mercer. 

The Illini (2-0) used a 24-7 first-half run to build a 
30-10 lead in dominating the Bears (1-3). Mercer made 
only three-ot-eight shots and committed six turnovers 
over that nine-minute span as the Illini pushed a 6-3 
lead to 20 points. 

Illinois led by as many as 36 points and never led by 
fewer than 30 after the break. Deron Williams scored 
14 points and Nick Smith had 13 for the Illini, who 
have scored more than 90 points in each of their rwo 
games this season. 

Mercer lost its third srraight game despite 15 points 
from Jacob Skogen. Scott Emerson scored 14 points for 
the Bears, who shot only 40 percent from the floor and 
committed 21 turnovers. 

Illinois' speed and motion offense was too much for 
Mercer from rhe start. The Illini were able to move the 
ball to their front line for shorr shots, which let Brown 
roam free on the perimeter.

#12 Illinois 75 
Temple 60 

Nov. 29, 2003 

The Palestra, Philadelphia, Pa. 

Roger Powell had 19 points and 10 rebounds, 
Deron Williams added 18 points and Dee Brown 16 
to lead No. 12 Illinois to a 75-60 victory over Temple. 

Illinois opened the game on an 18-5 run, keyed by 
four 3-pointers, including three by Williams. The 
Illini broke Temple's zone by making almost all their 
baskets early from the outside. The Illini raced to a 
27-7 lead and made eight of their first 12 shots. 

Powell was 6-for-7 from the floor, Williams 6-for-8 
and Brown 6-for-l 5. Williams and Brown each made 
four 3's. When the outside shot wasn't open, Powell 
was there with a bucket in the paint or an offensive 
rebound and put-back after a miss. 

David Hawkins led Temple with 28 points on 10- 
for-18 shooting. No other Owl was in double figures. 

Temple was smothered by Illinois' man defense 
and had lew good looks at the basket in the first half. 

lemple had little ball pressure until switching to a 
1-2-2 trapping zone early in the second half which 
forced two straight turnovers and led to four points. 
Still, that only made the score 52-40. Williams then 
sank his fourth 3-pointet on Illinois' next possession 
to push its lead back to 1 5. The Illini rolled from 
there, getting two more 3-pointers to finish with nine.

Game #4 

#11 Illinois 81 

#10 North Carolina 88 

Dec. 2, 2003 

Greensboro Coliseum, Greensboro, N.C. 

The lOth-ranked Tar Heels remained undefeated 
with an 88-81 victory over No. 1 1 Illinois in the ACC- 
BigTen Challenge, outlasting one of the nation's deep- 
est teams behind Sean May's 23 points and 14 
rebounds. 

May got plenty of help from Rashad McCants, who 
added 20 points, and Jawad Williams, who played with 
a hip pointer, had 1 8 as all five North Carolina starters 
logged at least 31 minutes. 

Illinois PG Dee Brown had a chance to tie the score 
rwice late with 3-pointers, but missed and finished 3- 
for-17 from the field for just eight points. Oeron 
Williams led Illinois (3-1) with 22 points, while Roger 
Powell added 20. 

North Carolina led 79-78 before Williams sank a 
follow shot and McCants hit a free throw. He missed his 
second from the line with 46.7 seconds left, but got the 
rebound and the Tar Heels closed out Illinois from the 
foul line. 

The Tar Heels hit five of their first seven shots to 
open the second half to build the lead to nine. But 
Powell brought the Fighting Illini back with a shot in 
the lane and a hook to start a spurt that saw Illinois 
score 13 points in 312 minutes to retake the lead at 3 3- 
54 with 13:43 remaining. 

It remained close until Powell picked up his fourth 
foul with 6:19 left and the score tied at 69. With Powell 
on the bench, the Tar Heels hit four foul shots, got a 
follow from Jackie Manuel and a layup by McCants to 
go up by eight before a late charge by Illinois. 

Illinois had trouble from the outside against North 
Carolina's tough defense, going 0-for-7 in the first half 
from 3-point range and 6-of-24 for the game. The Illini 
also had trouble at the line, missing 1 l-ot-18.

#11 Illinois 84 
Arkansas 61 

Dec. 6, 2003 

United Center, Chicago, III. 

Deron Williams sat front and center, not looking at 
all comfortable as he answered questions after another 
standout performance lor Illinois. 

He better get used to the attention. 

The sophomore guard had 17 points and 10 assists 
as No. 1 1 Illinois rebounded from its first loss of the 
season with an 84-61 victory over Arkansas. 

Williams, who had a career-high 22 points in the 
loss to North Carolina, left the game with five minutes 
to go and Illinois (4-1) leading by 27 points. He was 
greeted by a loud ovation from the partisan crowd. 

Sophomore James Augustine had 12 points and 12 
rebounds lor the Illini. Illinois committed just 13 
turnovers for the game and forced Arkansas (4-1) into 
21 turnovers that led to 25 points. 

The Illini led by 15 at halftime and scored three 
straight baskets to open the second half. Nick Smith hit 
a lumper, Williams caught a lob underneath the basket 
for a reverse layup, and then made a nice pass to set up 
Roger Powell to extend the lead to 21. 

Arkansas shot just 33 percent and trailed by at least 
20 points tor most of the second half. The Razorbacks, 
under second-year coach Stan Heath, were off to their 
best start in five vears. 

Illinois is 22-6 and has won nine straight at the 
United Center.

Madison Square Garden, New York, N.Y. 



Ryan Gomes had 24 points and 12 rebounds, 
Donnie McGrath scored all 15 of his points in the sec- 
ond half and Providence beat No. 14 Illinois 70-51 in 
the opening game ol the Jimmy V Classic. 

The Friars (4-1) overcame a terrible start and a 30- 
24 halftime deficit behind the offense of Gomes and 
McGrath and the effectiveness of their 2-3 zone that 
shut down the backcourt of the Illini (4-2). 

Providence, coming oft a loss at Rhode Island, did- 
n't score for the opening 712 minutes, falling behind 
12-0. Despite getting within 12-11, the Friars were

been a lot worse. 

Gomes and McGrath scored all the points in an 11- 
run that gave Providence a 44-35 lead with 13:07 to 
play. Illinois, could not get good perimeter shots against 
the zone and the Friars pulled away to the easy victory. 

McGrath finished 5-for-7 from the field, including 
4-for-5 from 3-point range, and had five assists. He hit 
three 3s in the opening 312 minutes of the second half. 
Rob Sanders added I 5 points and eight rebounds for 
the Friars. 

James Augustine had 16 points and 1 1 rebounds tor 
the Illini, while Roger Powell had 13 points. The start- 
ing backcourt of Deron Williams and Dee Brown

Game #8 

#14 Illinois 74 
Memphis 64 

Dec. 13, 2003 

Assembly Hall, Champaign, III. 

Freshman Rich McBride took his coach's challenge 
for somebody to replace the injured Deron Williams 
and scored 22 poinrs to lead No. 14 Illinois to a 74-64 
win over Memphis. 

McBride hit six 3-poinrers, including a buzzer-beat- 
er at the end ot the first halt and three more duting a 
crucial five-minute stretch of the second halt as the 
Illini (6-2) turned a two-point deficit into a !5-point 
lead. He also had five rebounds, five assists and went 
without a turnover while playing 29 minutes. 

James Augustine scored 21 points for the Illini, who 
won tor the 21st straight time at Assemblv Hall. 
Williams sat on the bench with a broken jaw sustained 
in Thursday's game against Maryland-Eastern Shore. 

Rodney Carney scored 18 points and Antonio Burks 
scored 16 tor Memphis. 

A McBride 3-pointer gave Illinois a 40-34 lead with 
15:2" left to play, and it opened up the inside tor the 
Illini. Three straight baskets, one by Nick Smith and 
two by Augustine, the last a 3-point play, put the Illini 
up 47-37 with 13:13 to play. 

McBride hit his fourth 3-pointer of the night com- 
ing out ot the ensuing timeout. Then Augustine hit a 
lavup on a feed from Smith to put the Illini up 52-37 
with 12:16 to go. 

Poor shooting was as contagious as the flu in the fitst 
half. Illinois fell behind 19-9 with 10:18 left and were 
4-ot-23 at one point. 

But the Tigers' shooting eves weren't much better. 
Memphis made onlv 1 1 of 30 shots in the halt as it 
watched that 10-point lead vanish. The Illini tied the 
scote at 21, and Richard McBride's 3-pointet at the 
buzzer put the Illini up 28-27 at the break.

Game #9 

#21 Illinois 71 
#11 Missouri 70 

Dec. 23, 2003 

Savvis Center, St. Louis, Mo. 

Barely into his first season at Illinois, head coach 
Bruce Weber was rold abour the significance ot the 
"Braggin' Rights" game against Missouri. And, after a 
71-70 win over No. 1 1 Missouri in the annual neutral- 
site battle, he was able to understand it even more. 

Guatd Dee Btown led Illinois with 18 points and six 
assists while playing 39 minutes. 

It was one that almost got away tor No. 21 Illinois, 
which held a 21 -point lead late in the first halt only to 
have Missouri tie it with 1:30 to play on a 3-pointet by 
Travon Bryant. 

Sophomore forward James Augustine scored on a 
layup with 58.5 seconds to play to put Illinois back on 
top tor good. Augustine had 14 points and 10 
rebounds. 

Illinois hadn't played tor 10 days, but if there was 
any rust, it didn't show. The Illini dominated the early 
going, outtunning and outhustling Missouri. 

Despite a size advantage for the Tigers, Illinois 
worked the ball inside tor layups, hooks and short 
jumpers and built a 40-19 lead with 4:20 to go in the 
first half. Missouri committed 11 of its 18 turnovers in 
the opening half. 

But Missouri chipped away, eventually tying the 
game at 67-67 on Bryant's 3-pointer. 

After Augustine's basket, Missouri's Arthut Johnson 
had a chance to tie the game again, but missed a shorr 
jumper wirh 23 seconds left. After Brown made two free 
throws with 19.7 seconds left, Missouri's Jimmy 
McKinnev hit a 3-pointer with 0.4 seconds left. After a 
timeout, the Illini iced the game by simply inhounding 
the ball. 

Illinois has won the last tour "Braggin' Righrs" 
games and 1 5 ot rhe series' 23.

Game #15 

#25 Illinois 88 
Iowa 82 

Jan. 17, 2004 

Assembly Hall, Champaign, III. 

A diving save by Deron Williams and a key steal 
from Dee Brown in the second hall displayed the gtit 
Illinois coach Bruce Weber was looking tor. 

"All we talked about at halftime was fighting," 
Weber said. "Our kids played with a lot more energy 
in the second half." 

And that was the difference in. No. 25 Illinois' 88- 
82 victory over Iowa. 

Roger Powell scored 20 points, and Williams had 
17 as the Illini came back from a 43-38 halftime 
deficit to snap a two-game skid. 

Illinois let a nine-point lead in the fitst half slip 
away but came out of halftime with a 10-0 run and 
scored 50 points. 

Williams' diving save with just over 7 minutes 
remaining proved to be a key play, even though the 
Illini didn't score. Brown's steal came with 59.4 sec- 
onds remaining, and he called timeout as he dove out 
ot bounds after stripping the ball from Jeff Horner. 

That kept the Illini lead at tout, and they convert- 
ed 9-of-10 free throws in the final minute to seal the 
victory. 

Brown scored 14 points and had eight assists and 
two steals. Nick Smith added 18 points for Illinois. 

Pierre Pierce scored 26 points while plaving all 40 
minutes and Brady Bovd added 20 tor the Hawkeyes.

Illinois 67 
Michigan 52 

Jan. 31, 2004 

Assembly Hall, Champaign, III. 



Luther Head hit a career-high five 3-pointers and 
scored 18 points, and Deron Williams scored 15 
points and had five assists to lead Illinois to a 67-52 
win over Michigan, 

Head hit two of the 3-pointers during a 13-3 sec- 
ond-half run that turned a three-point game into a 
double-digit Illini lead with 12:21 to go. 

Six minutes later, Williams keyed a five-point burst 
that broke a 4-0 Michigan run, hitting a three and 
then flipping a nice pass to Roger Powell for a layup 
on the next possession to put Illinois up 55-44. The 
Wolverines couldn't get within double digits again. 

The Wolverines hit only one of five shots from the 
field in the last six minutes of the game as Illinois 
outscored them 14-S and held Michigan to a season- 
low scoring total. Michigan shot only 35 percent from 
the field and was just 3-of-lS from behind the 3-point 
line. 

Williams also had five rebounds and Dee Brown 
scored 13 points for Illinois. 

Bernard Robinson Jr. led Michigan with 14 points 
and Lester Abram scored 12 tor Michigan, which saw 
its three-game winning streak snapped. 

Illinois ran into foul trouble early in the second 
half as big men James Augustine and Nick Smith each 
picked up his fourth foul in the first 5:05. But reserve 
Jack Ingram gave coach Bruce Weber 12 minutes of 
solid play and Michigan was unable to take advantage 
inside.

Game #19 

Illinois 51 
Indiana 49 

Feb. 3, 2004 

Assembly Hall, Bloomington, Ind. 

Deron Williams scored all 12 of his points in the 
second half and Nick Smith hit two long jumpers late 
in the game, helping Illinois rally for a 51-49 victory 
over Indiana. 

The Illini entered the game as the Big Ten's high- 
est-scoring team but hatdly resembled it against the 
Hoosiers. Illinois shot just 39 percent from the field 
and was just 2-of-16 from 3-point range. Roger Powell 
led the Illini with 15 points. 

A.J. Move had 14 points and Marshall Strickland 
12 for Indiana, which shot a dismal 15 percent from 
the field in the second half and lost its second straight 
game. The Hoosiers made just 4-ol-26 held goal 
attempts in the second half and none aher a 10-footer 
by A.). Moye wirh 9:53 remaining. 

Indiana had rwo chances to win in the final sec- 
onds, but Bracey Wrighr's first 3-pointer was blocked 
by Smith and his heave from near midcourt was off 
the mark. 

The Illini overcame a 20-point first half and won 
despite tying a season-low tor points. 

Williams' burst to open the second half and an 
Indiana scoring drought ot nearly five minutes kept 
Illinois close. 

Smith took care of the rest. His 19-footer with 3:28 
left gave Illinois its first lead, 49-48, and after 
Indiana's Sean Kline tied the score by making l-of-2 
free throws, Smirh answered with a 17-footer with 
2:41 to ^o. Neither team scored again.

Luther Head scored 17 points and James 
Augustine scored 16 poinrs and grabbed 1 1 rebounds

the Illini bumped the Spartans out ot the Big Ten 
Conference lead and into a second-place rie with 
Illinois, a half-game behind Wisconsin.

ond halt.

Deron Williams scored a career-high 31 points to 
lead Illinois to a 65-57 win over No. 12 Wisconsin.

steals. 

Illinois won its fifth straight game. Both teams are 
now 17-5 overall and 8-3 in the Big Ten, tied for sec- 
ond place, a half-game behind Michigan State. 

Williams scored seven during a 12-4 run that 
turned a 24-18 deficit into a 30-28 halftime lead. 

"He shot it a lot better than he did at our place," 
said Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan. "You've got to give 
him credit. What was the difference in the game? It 
was him." 

Illinois held \\ i^immii 's leading scorer. Devm 
Harris, to 16 points after he scored 30 in Madison. 
Mike Wilkinson, who had a career-high 24 points in 
the first game, scored only seven. 

The Badgers took a 31-30 lead when Wilkinson hit 
a 3-pointer to start the second half But Illinois quick- 
ly regained the lead for good as a 13-3 run put the 
Illini up 44-36 with 12:38 to go. 

The Badgers were able to put together a 7-0 run 
that cut their deficit to 50-49 with 5:32 remaining, 
but Illinois responded with eight straight points and 
made its free throws down the stretch to seal the victo- 
ry-

#23 Illinois 78 
Iowa 59 

Feb. 25, 2004 

Carver-Hawkeye Arena, Iowa City, Iowa 



Dee Brown took care of the offense. He let his 
Illinois teammates take care of the other end ol the 
eotitt. 

Brown had 18 points and 10 assists while ttustrat- 
ing Iowa with his speed in the 23rd-ranked Illini's 78- 
39 victory. 

Illinois (19-5, 10-3) held the BigTen's top scoring 
team 14 points below its season average in its seventh 
straight win. 

Luthet Head had 16 points and 10 rebounds lor 
Illinois, while Deron Williams added 13 points, 
including thtee 3-pointers in the second half that all 
came before the shot clock expired. Roger Powell had 
12 and the Illini shot 58 percent, including 47 percent 
on 3-pointets. 

Brown, who was 7-of-14 from the field, was dan- 
gerous outside and inside, and his 3-poinrer with 
1 2:4^ left in the second hall put Illinois in control 
with a 53-3 1 / lead. 

Unable to crack the relenrless Illinois defense, the 
Hawkeyes never cur the lead below double figures the 
rest ol the way. 

Illinois, which came into the game with the Big 
Ten's third-best scoting defense, shut down Iowa's 
outside shooters and slowed its ttansition game - 
essentially challenging the Hawkeyes' smaller front- 
court to score inside. 

The victory kept Illinois in second place in the Big 
Ten, one-half game behind Michigan State. 

Brown had 1 1 points in the first halt as Illinois shot 
53 percent in taking a 39-28 lead. The Illini closed the 
half with a 14-3 tun.

#23 Illinois 66 
Northwestern 56 

Feb. 28, 2004 

Assembly Hall, Champaign, III. 

What a difference a month makes. 

Illinois was hung with a 20-point loss at Wisconsin 
on Jan. 24 that dropped the Illini to 3-3 in the Big 
Ten before. They haven't lost since, winning eight in .1 
row and finishing February with a perfect 7-0 record 
after beating Northwestern 66-56 to avenge one of 
those earlier losses. 

Dee Brown scored 20 points and the frontcourt 
duo of Nick Smith and Roger Powell combined for 27 
points as the Illini (20-5, 1 1-3) broke open a close 
game in the second half. Smith and Powell scored all 
the points in a decisive 12-6 run that put the Illini up 
55-44 with 8:52 to go. 

Brown then hit two 3-pointers during an 8-2 run 
that put the Illini up 63-46 with 5:31 to go. 

Brown has shaken oft a scoring slump with 62 
points in his last three games. Smith finished with 14 
points and Powell had 13. 11 aftef halftime. 

Northwestern (12-13, 7-7), which beat Illinois 70- 
60 eatlier in the season, got only four points from cen- 
ters Ivan Tolic and Davor Duvancic. Duvancic scored 
22 against Illinois in January. Vedran Vukusic and 
Jitim Young each scored 16 points, while Mohamed 
Hachad scored 14 for the Wildcats. 

The Wildcats shot 52 percent in in a close first half 
that included eight lead changes, but rhey hit only 37

Game #26 

#18 Illinois 81 
Purdue 79 

March 3, 2004 

Mackey Arena, West Lafayette, Ind. 

Nick Smith hit two key 3-pointets in overtime and 
Luther Head converted an offensive rebound as he was 
tailing to the floor with nine-tenths of a second left to 
give No. 18 Illinois its ninth straight win, 81-79 over 
Purdue. 

The big shots bv Smith and Head clinched a share 
of the Big Ten Championship for Illinois (21-5, 12-3). 
The Illini are one half-game in front ot Michigan State 
(12-4) and one game in front of Wisconsin (11-4) in 
the conference standings. A win Sunday at Ohio State 
would give Illinois its first outright confernce title 
since 1952. 

Purdue's Kenneth Lowe tied the game at 79 with 
a 3-pointer with 22 seconds left, btit Roger Powell 
beat everyone down the floor and had an open look at 
a layup. His shot was off the mark, and Head followed 
it with an acrobatic one of his own to cap a thrilling 
game. 

Smith scored eight of his 12 points in overtime. 
The 7-foot-2 junior started the overtime with a 3- 
pointet for a 72-69 lead. He added anothet that 
bounced oft the front of the rim and rolled in for a 
77-73 lead with 2:01 to play. 

David Teague answeted with a 3-pointer tot 
Putdue, and Lowe hit his 3-pointer 90 seconds later 
That set up Head's heroics, and the Illinois players 
mobbed the court and celebtated with thousands of 
their fans who made the trip. 

Head had 19 poinrs for the Illini, while Deron 
Williams had 16 points and 10 assists. Dee Brown 
added 15 points and seven rebounds. 

Lowe scoted 23 points and Teague added 17 for 
Purdue, which shot 55 percent from the field, but 
came up one play short.

Game #27 

#18 Illinois 64 
Ohio State 63 

March 7, 2004 

Value City Arena, Columbus, Ohio 

During the darkest moments ot the season, the 
Illinois players still believed. The payoff came in the 
final regular-season game at Ohio State. 

Deron Williams' free throw with 16.5 seconds left 
ptovided the final margin in No. 18 Illinois' 64-63 
win over Ohio State, securing the Illini's first outfight 
Big Ten title in 52 years. 

The Illini (22-5, 13-3) dominated most of the 
game, leading by as many as 16 points in the fitst halt 
and 17 in the second, before a furious Ohio State 
comeback in the final nine minutes. 

Williams hit a free throw to give the Illini a 64-60 
lead. Ohio State countered on a 3-pointer by Tony 
Stockman with 6.2 seconds remaining. 

After a timeout, the Illini inbounded to Williams, 
an 86 petcent free-throw shooter, who was fouled with 
5.2 seconds left. 

Williams missed the first of a one-and-one situa- 
tion, however, and Ohio State's Terence Dials 
rebounded. Brandon Fuss-Cheatham brought the ball 
the length of the floor as time slipped away. 

He tried to slide past Illinois center James 
Augtistine, but ran into his fight side, the ball squirt- 
ing loose as the final buzzer sounded. 

The Illini have won at least a share of a Big Ten 
title in thtee of the last four seasons and four of the 
last seven. 

Dee Brown led the Illini with 18 points, Williams 
had 14 and Luther Head 13 as the Illini won their 
10th in a row - their longest streak since winning the 
first 1 1 games of the 1989-90 season. 

It was also their 10th consecutive conference win, 
the best for the school since winning 13 in a row at 
the end of the 1954-55 season and the beginning of 
the 1955-56 Big Ten season.

Game #28 

#12 Illinois 71 
Indiana 59 

March 12, 2004 

Conseco Fieldhouse, Indianapolis, Ind. 

Deron Williams felt sick just before Illinois' game 
against Indiana. Fortunately lor the Illini, he recovered 
just in time. 

Williams scored 12 of his 20 points in the final 
five minutes to lead Illinois past Indiana 71-59 in the 
Big Ten tournament quarterfinals. 

He went 7-of-16 from the field, made three 3- 
pointers, 3-of-3 free throws, grabbed five rebounds 
and had seven assists. And he was the catalyst in 
Illinois' closing run after Indiana tied it at 54. 

Although Luther Head scored a career-high 29 
points and helped seal the win with ftee throws, 
Williams was the difference. 

Illinois won its 1 1th straight game to advance to 
the tournament semifinals for the seventh straight 
year. 

iVIatk Johnson led Indiana with 16 points and A.J. 
Moye added 13 points and nine rebounds in his final 
college game. 

The Hoosiers fought their way back aftet trailing 
28-21 at halftime and falling behind 45-32 midway 
through the second half. 

Johnson hit two free throws, Wright a 3-pointer 
and Johnson two more free thtows to make get the 
Hoosiers within 47-42 with 8:36 left. Johnson's fourth 
trey of the game with 5:44 left tied the score at 52. 

That's when Williams took control. He broke a 
54-54 tie with a driving layup, a play that turned the 
game. 

Illinois got a defensive stop and on its next posses- 
sion, Williams hit a 3-pointer. After Jack Ingram hit 
one of two free throws, Williams hit another 3 to make 
it 63-54 with 2:45 left, and Indiana was finished.

#12 Illinois 74 
Michigan 60 

March 13, 2004 

Conseco Fieldhouse, Indianapolis, Ind. 

Dee Brown scored 21 points and 12th-tanked 
Illinois held off a second-half comeback to beat 
Michigan 74-60 Saturday in the Big Ten tourney 
semifinals. 

Michigan cut a 15-point Illinois lead to two points 
midway through the second period, mainly with the 
3-point shooting of Daniel Horton. 

But Brown counteted with his second 3-pointet, 
then added two free throws and another basket on a 
goaltend as the Illini pulled away fot good. A dunk by 
James Augustine off one of Brown's five assists gave 
Illinois its biggest lead of the game at 72-56 with 
under rwo minutes to go. 

Early ettots were costly for the Wolvetines, who 
had lout tutnovers in the fitst four minutes. Two ol 
them were on consecutive possessions, leading to fast- 
break layups by Jack Ingram and Brown. 

Two sttaight 3-pointets by Richard McBride start- 
ed an 1 1-2 run to give Illinois its biggest lead ol the 
half at 28-13. Michigan ttailed 37-29 at halftime. 

A pait ol 3-pointets by Horton helped cut the lead 
to 39-37, the closest Michigan had come since the 
eatly minutes of the game. The Wolvetines still ttailed 
just 47-44 after another thtee by Horton before 
Illinois began to pull away. 

A deep 3-pointer by Btown pushed the lead to 1 0, 
then three minutes latet another 3-point basket by 
Luther Head made it 64-51, and Michigan came no 
closet than 1 1 points in the final four minutes.

er and Augustine scored on a putback to make it 62- 
47.

linois Basketball Centennial Season 



YEAR-BY-YEAR RECORDS 




Head Coach Elwood Brown 
(1 year, 6-8, .429) 




Leo Hana was put in charge 
of building the basketball 
program at Illinois after a 
women's program had exist- 
ed for years. A team, led bv 
its playing captain Rov 
Riley, beat Champaign 
High School Jan. 6, two 
weeks before Hana was able 
to teplace Riley with a 'pro- 
fessional" coach. Elwood 
Brown became Illinois' first 
basketball coach Jan. 20, 
1906, and ptoceeded to 
turn in a commendable 
coaching job, especially since the squad lost two of its 
mainstays during the season. "The results of the season 
were on the whole satisfactory. In the future, there will not 
be such a lack of material as hampered the coach (Brown) 
this season," wtote the 1 907 Ulio.

Head Coach F.L. Pinckney 
(1 year, 1-10, .090) 



Pinckney took ovet the coaching reins for a year in 1 907. 
There was promise for a good season after the solid start the 
program had made in 1 906, More than 100 men ttied out 
for the team. Pinckney found at least three freshman he 
thought would help the team and placed them on the var- 
sity squad. However, the Western Conference Committee 
declared the three ineligible, leaving Pinckney with a much 
depleted team and Illinois with its worst record ever. The 
decision to make the freshmen ineligible gave Pinckney the 
same problem Brown faced the year before - turning out a 
winning team with limited talent.

Head Coach Fletcher Lane 
(1 year, 20-6, .769) 




Fletcher Lane's all-time best 
winning percentage among 
Illinois coaches is mislead- 
ing, since he only coached 
for one year. His 20-6 team 
of 1908 benefited from a 
long Southern trip in which 
the team beat several 
YMCA and club teams 
from Tennessee, Texas, 
Alabama, and Georgia. The 
club was billed as a closely- 
knit group, due in part to 
the long ttip. The players, 
however, did not appear to 
appreciate Lane's coaching 
style. M.G. Dadant, the 1908 captain wrote, 
"Handicapped as they were by the lack of any competent 
coaching, the players went through the season in perfect 
harmony, each one relinquishing any personal feelings that 
the team might be better as a whole."

Head Coach Frank Winters 
(2 years, 25-12, .676) 




While in his two-year stint 
as coach of the Illinois bas- 
ketball team, Frank Winters 
was faced with having only 
a handful of veteran players 
available and was forced 
into installing an entirely 
new system of play. His 25- 
12 record in rwo years was a 
testament to the way 
Wi n ters made negat ives 
into positives. Upon arriv- 
^^RB^ Wfa m g as bead coach in the fall 

HL tf fr *fl I 0t ^20, ne inherited a 

team whose best player. 
Chuck Carney, bad just severely injured his knee in the last 
football game. Nonetheless, the team went on to an 11-7 
record and improved to 14-5 in the 1922 campaign.

YEAR-BY-YEAR RECORDS 



Head Coach J. Craig Ruby 
(14 years, 148-95, .609) 




J. Craig Ruby was known as 
one of the great basketball 
tacticians of his time. He 
and legendary Kansas coach 
Phog Allen actively cam- 
paigned together for higher 
baskets to offset the advan- 
tage o^ tall centers. Ruby 
alone advocated the elimi- 
nation of the dribble to do 
away with stalling, and 
wanted the hoop enlarged 
to 20 inches in diameter 
rather than the srandard 18. 
Ruby's second season at 
Illinois produced a tie for the Big Ten Championship in 
1924, but it was not until 1935 that he could lead his team 
to tie for top conference honors again.

Head Coach Douglas R. Mills 
(11 years, 151-66, .696) 




Doug Mills was not only an 
extremely successful basket- 
ball coach at Illinois, but 
one or the University's most 
prolific and long-standing 
administrators. He began 
his association with 
Fighting Mini athletics as a 
standout in both football 
and basketball in the late 
1920s. Mills became the 
first Illinois head basketball 
coach to lead his squad to 
three Big Ten crowns. Also 
included in his 1 1-year 
coaching tenure was the 
formation ot the legendary 
"Whiz Kids" team of 1942 and '43. That team won back- 
to-back Big Ten crowns. After retiring from the coaching 
ranks in 1947, Mills retained his position as athletic direc- 
tor until 1966.

Harry Combes only had to 
move across town after 
accepting the job as head 
coach at Illinois. Ptior to 
joining the Illini, he had 
been head coach at 
Champaign High School 
where he posted an astound- 
ing 254-46 record, includ- 
ing winning the state title in 
1946. Once at Illinois he 
won three Big Ten titles in 
his first five seasons ('49, '51 
and '52). It was also Combes 
who led the Fighting Illini 
to three third-place finishes 
in the NCAA Tournament in the four-year period from 
1949-52. The squad won 79 of the 100 games during those 
four years. Illinois' 1952 Final Four appearance was the first 
officially recognized Final Four and the only Final Four 
appearance Illinois made until 1989. Until Lou Henson 
broke the record in 1990, Combes' 316 wins were the most 
wins ever by an Illinois head basketball coach.

Head Coach Gene Bartow 
(1 year, 8-18, .308) 




Brought to Illinois to con- 
tinue the magical rebuilding 
jobs he had undertaken at 
Valparaiso and Memphis 
Scare, Gene Bartow was 
counted on by Athletic 
Director Cecil Coleman to 
restore rhe successful level of 
play fans had become accus- 
tomed to in the past few 
decades. However, Bartow's 
stay in Champaign was 
short-lived, lasting onlv one 
year and producing an S-IS 
record. The lure away from 
Illinois was a strong one for Bartow, he was hired away by 
UCLA to replace legendary Bruin coach John Wooden.

Head Coach Lou Henson 
(21 years, 423-224, .654) 




Lou Henson, the all-time 
winningest coach in Illinois 
basketball history, came to 
Champaign-Urbana after 
successful head coaching 
stints at Hardin-Simmons 
and New Mexico State 
Universities. He finished 
his Illinois career No. 12 on 
the NCAA all-time victory 
list with 663 wins. Illinois 
became a national power 
under Henson, being 
selected to the NCAA tour- 
nament 1 1 times. The high- 
light of the postseason com- 
petition came in 1989 when the spectacular Flying Illini 
team won a school-record 31 contests and advanced to the 
Final Four. Henson's Illini were also seeded among the top 
four in their regional for six consecutive years { 19S4-S9) for 
the second-longest such streak (next to North Carolina) 
ever. Illinois finished in the upper division in the Big Ten 
nine consecutive seasons (1983-91), and had 11 straight 
years of producinga plus-. 5()0 BigTen record from 1981 to 
1991, the fifth-longest streak of that kind in BigTen histo- 
ry. Henson led the Illini to a 1984 Big Ten co-champi- 
onship and No. 1 national ranking in 1989. He coached 
Illinois to nine straight 20-win seasons from 1983 to 
1991and finished his UI career as the third-winningest 
coach in BigTen history with 214 victories.

Big Ten Champions 



Over the course of 100 years, the University of 
Illinois has enjoyed the creation of a stellar basket- 
ball tradition that includes Final Four appearances, 
Ail-Americans, Academic Ail-Americans, NBA 
first-round draft selections, and a place among the 
nation's elite basketball programs year-in and year- 
out. The University of Illinois basketball tradition 
got its start when the Big Ten Conference officially 
began playing basketball in 1906. At the time the 
member schools of the "Intercollegiate Conference 
of Faculty Representatives," or "Western 
Conference,"' or "Big Ten Conference" as it was 
known were University of Chicago, University of 
Illinois, University of Michigan, University of 
Minnesota, Northwestern University, Purdue 
University, and the University of Wisconsin. 

1906-1909 (34-30) 

The first official game in Illinois history was a 71 -4 
romp over Champaign High School in Urbana on 
Jan. 12,1 906. The first four years of Illinois hoops 
saw four different coaches who combined for a 34- 
30 record. In the first season of Illinois basketball 
the lllini went 6-8, 3-6 in the Big Ten under head 
coach Elwood Brown. The following season the 
Illini's record dropped to 1-10, 0-8 under FT. 
Pickney. A new coach, Fletchet Lane, and a new 
season arrived in 1907-08 and the lllini posted a 
20-8 record and went 6-5 in the conference. 
Despite a successful season, the lllini underwent its 
fourth coaching change in as many years and new 
mentor Herb V. Juul stayed two seasons (1909 and 
1910) and was 7-6 his inaugural year and 5-4 the 
next season. 

• Big Ten grows to eight teams with the addition 
of Iowa in the 1907 season. 

1910-1919 (95-48) 

decade brought the program an extended 
ess. In the 1910s Illinois won two Bit; 



Ten titles, in 1915 and 1917, and compiled a 95- 
48 record including a perfect 16-0 record in 1915. 
That 1915 season was the third in the eight-year 
tenure of head coach Ralph Jones and it produced 
the only unbeaten season in lllini history and the 
first Big Ten title for the Illinois basketball pro- 
gram. Following the pertect season the Illinois 
team was named national champions by the Helms 
Foundation. Jones' 1915 team scored twice as 
many points as its opponents and won the confer- 
ence title by three games over Chicago. 

The arrival of the Woods brothers in 1915 had a 
lot to do with the success of this era. Guard Ray- 
Woods was named first-team All-America all three 
years he competed (1915-17), and brother Rait, a 
forward, led the team in scoring in both 1916 and 
1917. His consistency at the free throw line led to 
the establishment of the Rail "Woods Award, which 
is still given annually to the Fighting lllini player 
with the best free-throw percentage. 

Illinois followed up its conference championship 
season with a second-place finish after posting a 
13-3 record. The lllini dropped two games to 
Northwestern and one to eventual champion 
Wisconsin, but the first loss to the Wildcats was 
the Illini's first-ever overtime game as 
Northwestern scored two points in the overtime 
period to beat Illinois, 23-21. Feb. 12. 1916, at 
what is now the Kenney Gym Annex. 

In I'M 8. Jones and the lllini picked up their sec- 
ond conference championship crown in three years 
as Illinois went 13-3 overall and 10-2 in league 
games. The 1917 team featured a starting guard 
named George Halas. The professional football 
pioneer and former Chicago Bear owner and head 
coach was known on the team for his gritty 
defense and he was named captain of the 1918 
squad before entering the armed forces Jan. 18, 
1918. 



• Big Ten grows to nine teams with addition of 
Ohio State in the 1913 season. 

• Big Ten grows to 10 teams with addition of 
Michigan in the 1918 season. 

1920-29 (99-68) 

Jones led the lllini into the decade of the 1920s 
and started off this period with a 9-4 record and a 
third-place finish in the Big Ten in 1920. The fol- 
lowing season a new mentor, Frank Winters, was 
in Champaign-Urbana and his two-year stay pro- 
duced an 11-7 mark in 1921 and a 14-5 record in 
1922. 

Illinois Athletic Director George Huff replaced 
Winters with J. Craig Ruby, whose 14-year tenure 
at Illinois is the third longest in program history. 
In his first three seasons. Ruby led the lllini to a 
31-18 record and a share of the conference title 
with Wisconsin in 1924. In 1924, Illinois was 1 1- 
6 overall and 8-4 in the Big Ten. 

After winning Illinois' third conference title in 
1924, Ruby's lllini matched the win mark the fol- 
lowing year (1 1-6, 8-4) but dropped to third place 
in the standings. The lllini opened the 1926 season 
on Dec. 12, 1925, against Butler in the newly built 
Men's Gymnasium, which would later be renamed 
George Huff Gymnasium after Illinois Athletic 
Director George Huff. Illinois won its first game at 
the new gym, 23-22. The remainder of the decade 
saw Illinois go 10- 7 in both 1927 and 1929 taking 
fourth and fifth in the league standings, and 9-8 in 
1926. The only losing season in Ruby's Illinois 
career came with a 5-12 mark in 1928 and it is 
one of only 12 losing seasons in the University's 
1 00-year history.

In the decade of the 1930s Illinois picked up Big 
Ten championships number four and five in 1935 
and 1937. In 1935 the Illini squad was 5-3 after its 
first eight games, but rallied in the closing stretch 
of the season and won its last four contests to grab 
a share or the conference title. 

A new star on the playing floor emerged in the 
1935 season with the addition of Harry Combes to 
the roster. Combes, a three-year letterwinner, 
starred for the Illini from 1935-37 and later 
returned to his alma mater as head coach of the 
Illini in 1948. Combes helped lead Illinois to both 
its Big Ten titles in the 1930s. 

Ruby closed out his coaching tenure in 1935-36 
leading Illinois to a 13-6 record, 7-5 in the Big 
Ten, and third place in the league standings. 

The man chosen to replace Ruby was Douglas 
Mills. In his 1 1-vear tenure as head coach, Mills 
established himself as the first coach in Illinois his- 
tory to win or share three Big Ten championships. 

In his first season, 1936-37, Mills' Illini squad cap- 
tured a share of the Big Ten championship with a 
10-2 league record. The Illini were 14-4 overall. 
Following that season, the men's gymnasium got a 
new name, George Huff Gymnasium, after former 
Illinois athletic director George Huff, who passed 
away on Oct. 1, 1936. During the championship 
season, futute major league baseball Hall of Famer 
Lou Boudreau led the team in scoring with 8.7 
points per game. 



1940-49 (150-56) 



The decade of the 1940s brought much success to 
Illinois basketball. Head Coach Doug Mills led the 
Illini in consecutive Big Ten titles in 1942 and 



1943. The Illini would add another league champi- 
onship under Harry Combes in 1949. 

The Illini were the 13th-winningest Division I 
team in the nation in the 1940s. Illinois' 150-57 
record and .725 winning percentage was the best in 
the Big Ten. In 1941, Mills added to his coaching 
duties when he was named the school's director of 
athletics. That same year Art Mathisen arrived in 
Champaign in what would soon become the cre- 
ation of the famed "Whiz Kids." In 1942, joining 
Mathisen were lack Smiley Andv Phillip, Gene 
Vance and Ken Menke, who captured the attention 
of the entire nation while winning back-to-back 
conference titles and combining for a 35-6 record, 
25-2 in the Big Ten over those rwo seasons. To this 
day the "Whiz Kids" remain one of the most sto- 
ried teams in Illinois history. They dazzled crowds 
everywhere averaging 58 points per game, while 
most teams were averaging in the low 40s. 

The team was broken up March 1, 1943, when all 
five starters headed to active duty in the armed 
forces. All but Mathisen went on the play profes- 
sionally, and Phillip became a member of the 
Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame. 

After the departure of the Whiz Kids, Mills faced a 
major rebuilding job. Mills closed out his time as 
head coach .it Illinois in the 1947 season. That 
mark coincided with the teturn of the "Whiz Kids' 
from military service. A crowd of 7,785, the largest 
home crowd to that point in Illinois history, 
jammed into Huff Gvm to see theit return on Dec. 
6, 1946, against Cornell. The Whiz Kids played 
onlv the first half of the game in building a 49-13 
lead, and the Illini won 87-39. The Illini opened 
league play with two losses and dug their way back 
[o ,i second-place finish by winning eight ol their 
last 1 games. 

Aitet retiring from coaching, Mills retained his 



position as ath 



tic di 



irector until 



1966. 



Former Illini Harry Combes was re-associated with 
the program when he was selected to replace Mills 
as head coach of the Fighting Illini. He had previ- 
ously served as head coach at Champaign High 
School. In his first nine seasons at Illinois, he won 
three Big Ten titles and compiled an amazing 
record of 164-44 overall (.788) and 94-30 in the 
Big Ten (.758). 

Combes fitst team at Illinois in 1947-48, led by 
Dike Eddleman and Jack Burmaster, set a Big Ten 
scoring record with 1,530 points, en route to a 15- 
5 overall record and 7-5 league finish. His second 
war as head coach. Combes collected his first of 
four Big Ten championships as a head coach. He 
finished his Illinois career wirh a total of six cham- 
pionships as a player and coach. 

The four-year period between 1949-52 brought the 
University of Illinois three Big Ten championships, 
three 20-win seasons, and a 42-10 Big Ten mark. 
The 1949 squad, led by Eddleman, Bill Erickson, 
and Waltet Ostetkorn, was Illinois' first 20-game 
winner since 1908, finishing 21-4. That year, 
Illinois beat Yale, 71-67, to advance to a national 
semifinal showdown with Kentuckv at Madison 
Square ( larden in New York City. The Illini fell to 
the Wildcats. 76-47, forcing Illinois to defeat

• Big Ten grows to 10 teams with addition of 
Michigan State in the 1951 season. 

1960-69 (145-95) 

The 1960s produced Big Ten championship No. 11 
for Illinois in 1963. That season the lllini were 20- 
6 overall, 1 1-3 in the conference. Senior Dave 
Downey led the team in scoring as he had the pre- 
vious two seasons and he moved into first on the 
all-time scoring list. Downey also set the school 
record lor points in a game, which still stands, with 
53 in a road loss to Indiana on Feb. 16, 1963. 

Illinois was a game back of first place in the league 
standings with only two games remaining when the 
Assembly Hall opened its doors on March 4, 1963. 
Illinois' first game at the Hall was an exciting 79-73 
victor}' over Northwestern before 16,137 fans to 
stay within a game of first- place Ohio State. After 
Illinois edged Iowa, 73-69, in the last game of the 
season, the Fighting lllini would need an overtime 
loss two hours later by the Buckeyes at Indiana to 
share the title. 

The 1965 season was highlighted by Illinois' season 
opening 1 18-83 victor.' over defending national- 
champion UCLA at the Assembly Hall. Combes 
called the game, "one of the best an Illinois team 
has ever played." 

Combes closed out his lllini coaching career in 
1967 with a 12-12 tecord and seventh-place Big 
Ten finish. The season was highlighted by a 98-97 
victory over No. 3 Kentucky in Lexington on Dec. 

8. 

Another former lllini, Harv Schmidt, replaced 
Combes and led the team into the 1970s. 
Schmidt's lllini went 11-13 in 1968 and rebounded 



to a 19-5 record in 1969 and a second-place Big 
Ten finish. 



1970-79 (129-129) 

The decade of the 1970s brought two coaching 
changes, the second one brought Lou Henson, who 
would become the longest-tenured coach in Illinois 
history. In 1970, Illinois set an NCAA attendance 
record, selling out all 1 1 home games tor an aver- 
age of 16,128 fans per game. 

Although the lllini recorded a losing mark in 1971 
(1 1-12), that season welcomed Nick Weatherspoon 
from Canton, Ohio. "Spoon" stepped right into the 
starring lineup and led the team in rebounds. The 
next two years he led the team in scoring and 
rebounding before becoming a first-round draft 
selection and spending eight seasons in the NBA. 

Harv Schmidt concluded his Illinois coaching 
career in 1974 as the Illini's record dropped to 5-18 
and last place in the Big Ten standings. The follow- 
ing season. Gene Bartow served as head coach, but 
left to take the head coaching job in replacing the 
legendary John Wooden at UCLA after only one 
season. After Bartow's departure following the 1975 
campaign, the University picked New Mexico State 
Head Coach Lou Henson to bring success back to 
the Illinois program. He did just that, taking a 
team that won 14 games in his inaugural season to 
a 19-11 record within just four years. The last years 
of the 1970s signaled the arrival of Eddie Johnson 
and Mark Smith, two players who would lead the 
team into the 1980s and pave the way for Illinois' 
return ro national prominence. 

In 1979, Illinois finished seventh in the Big Ten, 
but went 19-1 1 overall, including ascension to No. 
2 in the national polls after starting the year 15-0.

most memorable games. That year, Illinois also led 
the nation in field-goal percentage defense (.404). 

1980-89 (233-90) 

Henson returned everyone for the 1980 campaign 
and the team gave the head coach his first ol 1 1 , 
20-win seasons at Illinois. That year, Illinois made 
its first postseason appearance since 1963, finishing 
third in the NIT. 

In 1981, Illinois made more strides in its return to 
the national spotlight with a 21-8 record, a third- 
place Big Ten finish and an invitation to the 
NCAA Tournament. The team received a first- 
round bye in the NCAA Tournament and beat 
Wyoming, 67-65, in Los Angeles to advance to the 
regionals in Salt Lake City, where Illinois lost to 
Kansas State, 57-52. 

That year, the Fighting Illini led the Big Ten in 
scoring tor the second consecutive season and were 
again led by Johnson and Smith. Guards Craig 
Tucker and Derek Harper arrived to add backcourt 
punch, and Harper began his Illini career being 
named Frst-Team Freshman All-America bv ESPN 
and ABC. 

The 1982 season brought Illinois another post-sea- 
son appearance, in the NIT, and an 18-11 record. 
Harper led the Big Ten in assists and steals. 

One ot Illinois' best groups arrived on campus in 
1983. Guards Bruce Douglas and Doug 
Altenberger, and forward Scott Meents and Efrem 
Winters joined sophomores George Montgomery 
and Anthony Welch to form the nucleus lot a team 
that would win 95 games during the next lour sea- 
sons. 



In 1983, the Fighting 1 



became the nation's 



25th team to cap the 1,000-win mark with a 72-70 
victory over Texas A&M in the Great Alaska 
Shootout. Latet that year. Harper was selected 
First-Team All-Big Ten, falling one vote shy of 
being a unanimous pick, before leaving school early 
for the NBA draft. He was a first round selection of 
the Dallas Mavericks as the fust pick in franchise 
history. 

The 1984 season brought Illinois its 12th Big Ten 
championship in a season whete Illinois had four 
overtime games including an epic four-overtime 
75-66 victory over Michigan. The next game was a 
rwo-overtime win at Iowa, Henson's 400th victory 
as a college head coach. The Illini recorded a 26-5 
mark and were 15-3 in Big Ten plav. tying Purdue 
lor the league title. The 1984 season also marked 
Illinois' first back-to-back 20 win seasons since 
1951-52. The Illini would go on to tecord a total 
of nine consecutive 20-win seasons from 1983-91. 
Illinois advance to the NCAA Regional Finals 
belore dropping a heart-breaking 54-51 loss to 
Kentucky on its home court causing the NCAA to 
put a rule in place not allowing a school to play in 
a tournament game on its home court. 

The Illini started out the 1985 season ranked No. 1 
nationally by Basketball Times in its preseason poll. 
Illinois made a return trip to the NCAA 
Tournament where the Illini advanced to the Sweet 



From 1984-87, Illinois" stingy defense ranked first 
in the Big Ten allowing only 54.9 points in 1984, 
55.7 in 1985, 63.3 in 1986, and 70.2 in 1987. 
During that same 1984-87 period, Illinois also 
ranked first in field goal defense, and the Illini wete 
first in three-point defense in 1987. 

luinor college transfer Ken Norman highlighted the 
I 986 season as he set the school record tor single- 
season field-goal percentage (.641). The next season 



saw the addition of an outstanding group of young 
players to the roster. Guards Steve Bardo, Kendall 
Gill and Larry Smith joined forward Nick 
Anderson in a highly touted recruiting class. This 
group produced another 20-win season (23-8) and 
a trip to the NCAA Tournament, where Illinois was 
beaten 68-67 by Austin Peay in arguably the 
school's most shocking upset. 

The 1988 season brought Henson his 500th career 
victory and laid the foundation for what would be 
an inctedible history making season in 1989. The 
1989 team may very well have been the most tal- 
ented team ever assembled at Illinois. The players 
known as the "Flying Illini," included all the 
important pieces of 1988 (Kenny Battle, Gill, 
Bardo, Lowell Hamilton, Anderson and Smith) as 
well as junior college All-American P.J. Bowman 
and former high school All-American Marcus 
Liberty. 

The team shattered most of its all-time records 
including points in a season (3,1 10), most steals in 
a season (341), and most wins in a season (31). 
The Fighting Illini won their first 16 games and

Rainbow Classic in December. The Yellow Jackets 
led, 47-31. but Illinois managed to sutge hack to

the next day came some bad news. Illinois' catalyst, 
Gill, had broken a bone in his loot and would miss 
the next 1 2 games. Hurt by the loss of Gill. Illinois 
lost three of the next four games and its No. 1 
ranking. The Illini tallied to finish second in the

and Syracuse, stood in the way of Illinois' trip to 
the Final Four. 

Louisville fell victim to Illinois, losing 83-69, 
which set up a regional final matchup with 
Syracuse. The Fighting lllini held off Syracuse to 
advance to the Final Four in Seattle where Illinois 
laced Michigan, a team it had beat twice already in 
1989, in the national semifinals. Despite Battle's 
29-point, 1 1 -rebound effort, Illinois fell to eventual 
national-champion Michigan, 83-81. 

1990-99 (187-120) 

Coming off the Final Four season, Illinois went 21- 
8 overall, 1 1-7 in the Big Ten in 1990. Gill, a sen- 
ior, became the first player since Norman in 1987 
to average 20 ppg and he was named a First-Team 
All-American by UPI. Gill led the Big Ten in scor- 
ing and was a finalist for the John Wooden Player 
of the Year Award. He was the fifth ovetall pick in 
the NBA draft that summer, going to the Charlotte 
Hornets. 

Entering the 1991 season, Illinois, faced with the 
loss of Gill, Bardo and Liberty, who declared him- 
sell eligible tor the NBA draft after his junior sea- 
son, was picked to finish as low as ninth in the Big 
Ten by some publications. But, junior forward 
Andv Kaufmann burst onto the scene scoring 660 
points, the second largest single-season total in 
Illinois history. He and the lllini proved the presea- 
son expectations wrong by going 21-10 and finish- 
ing third in the Big Ten. 

Illinois consecutive 20-win season streak was 
snapped in 1 12 when the lllini posted its first los- 
ing record in . going 13-15. After sitting 
out a season, 1 in returned for the 1992-93 
campaign and hi id Illinois to a 19-13 record 
and trip to the NC ; ournament. The following 



season, Illinois again advanced to the NCAA 
Tournament and in the process, senior Deon 
Thomas broke a 13-year old record and became the 
school's all-time leading scorer. Thomas scored his 
record-breaking 1,693rd point in the championship 
game of the Mini/Pepsi Classic against American 
University and he went on to finish his career with 
2,129 points. 

In 1994 a young upstart freshman, Kiwane Garris, 
would begin his assault on the all-time scoring list. 
He notched 446 points as a freshman and would be 
the catalyst on the lllini team over the next few 



After advancing to the NCAA Tournament in 
1995, Illinois extended its run on postseason play 
with a berth in the 1996 NIT. In 1996, the lllini 
started the season 11-1 before losing Garris to 
injury. Without its leader, the lllini dropped its first 
five Big Ten games. Garris returned, but was never 
1 00 percent and junior forward Jerry Hester missed 
games with a severely sprained ankle. The lllini fin- 
ished the 1996 season 18-13 overall, 7-1 1 in the 
Big Ten. But more importantly the 1996 season 
marked the end of the most successful era in 
Illinois basketball when Lou Henson announced 
his retirement before the end o! the season. In bis 
2 1 yeats at Illinois Henson notched 423 victories 
and guided the lllini to 1 1 NCAA Tournament 
appeatances. The Okay, Okla. native coached 
Illinois to 11, 20-win seasons and finished his 
career as the thitd-winningest coach in Big Ten his- 
tory with 214 league victories. 

On March 21, 1996, a new era in Illinois basket- 
ball began when Directot of Athletics Ron 
Guenther introduced Lon Kruger as the 
University's 14th men's basketball coach. Kruger 
came to Illinois from the University of Florida and 
carried a list of impressive credentials, including 
guiding Florida to the Final Fout in 1994. 



In his first year at Illinois, Kruger guided Illinois to 
a 22-10 tecord and the second round of the NCAA 
Tournament. His 22 wins in 1997 are the most by 
a coach in his first season at Illinois. Over the 
course of the season, Illinois defeated five ranked 
opponents, including No. 7 Minnesota, 96-90, at 
tbe Assembly Hall. Illinois also traveled to 
Bloomington and handed Indiana a 78-74 loss, the 
first win for Illinois at Assembly Hall in 
Bloomington since 1990. 

Duting the course of the year, Garris etched his 
name in the Illinois record book with one of the 
best season perfotmances by any lllini player in his- 
tory. He finished his career second on the all-time 
scoring list with 1,948 points and set the single-sea- 
son tecord for free throws made and attempted. 
Garris averaged 19.4 points and missed being the 
Big Ten's leading scoter by three one-hundredths of 
a point. 

In 1998, Kruger did the unthinkable as he took a 
team picked to finish seventh in the Big Ten and 
guided the lllini to a share of its first Big Ten tide 
since 1984. On the way to the league crown, 
Illinois went 5-0 against Indiana, Iowa, and 
Michigan for the fitst time in school history the 
lllini had gone undefeated against those teams dur- 
ing the course of a season. 

Illinois advanced to the second round of the 
NCAA Tournament after earning a No. 5 seed in 
the West Regional. The lllini defense was the Big 
Ten's best as Illinois finished the year first in scor- 
ing defense, field-goal defense and three-point 
defense in league games. 

In October 1998, Illinois moved into a state-of- 
the-art basketball practice facility, the Richard T 
Ubben Basketball Complex. The facility, which 
houses the coaches offices and practice gym, also

The Illini closed out the 1999 season with an 
amazing run at the Big Ten Tournament title. Alter 
entering the tournament as the llth-seeded team, 
Illinois reeled off three straight victories over Top 
25-ranked teams before losing in the championship 
game to second-tanked Michigan State. Illini fresh- 
man Cory Bradford was the Big Ten's Freshman of 
the Year and was also selected to the All- 
Tournament team. Bradford set a school record by 
making 85 three pointers on the season. 

2000-04 (126-38) 

In 2000, for the third rime in four seasons under 
Lon Kruger, Illinois advanced to the NCAA 
Tournament, this time as a #4 seed. After defeating 
Penn in the opening round, the Illini season ended 
with a defeat to evental national runner-up Florida. 
The Fighting Illini spent much of the season 
ranked in the Top 25, climbing as high as No. 15 
in late December. An early three-game losing streak 
in Big Ten play put the Illini in a hole to start 
league play at 1-3. But, Illinois went on to win 10 
of the last 12 league games before finishing second 
in the Big Ten Tournament. Cory Bradford earned 
second-team All-Big Ten honors after leading 
Illinois in scoring and the Big Ten in three-point 
field goals. He broke his own three-point field goal 
record by making 96 on the season. Forward Brian 
Cook was named Co-Freshman of the Yeat in the 
league and earned All-Tournament honors with 
strong play in the Big Ten Tournament. 

In May 2000. Kruger left Illinois to become head 
coach of the NBA's Atlanta Hawks. Another era of 
Illinois basketball was begun when the University 
named Bill Self its 15th head men's basketball 
coach on June 9, 2000. Self came to Illinois from 
Tulsa where he had led the Golden Hurricane to 
consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances. 



including an impressive 32-5 record and tourna- 
ment run to the regional finals in 2000. 

Self's first season at Illinois was certainly memo- 
rable. The Illini were ranked in the Top 10 the 
entire season and tied for the Big Ten 
Championship with Michigan State before earning 
a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. The Illini 
run was ended in the regional final to eventual 
national runner-up Arizona, the third meeting 
between the two schools on the season. 

Sophomore Frank Williams became the first Illini 
player to earn Big Ten Player of the Year honors 
since 1967 and was named to several postseason 
All-America squads. Junior Cory Bradford set an 
NCAA record by making a three-point field goal in 
88 consecutive games. 

In 2002, Self became just the second coach, and 
first since 1913, to win BigTen titles in each of his 
first two seasons. Frank Williams again earned first- 
team All-Big Ten honors as the Illini earned a tour- 
way share of the Big Ten title before advancing to 
the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA Tournament. The 
five seniors who finished their careers took the 
Illini from an 1 1 th-place finish in the league in 
1999 to consecutive BigTen titles in 2001 and 
2002. 

I he 2003 squad started three Ireshmen, a sopho- 
more and one senior, and still finished with a 25-7 
record and second-place finish in the BigTen. 
Brian Cook earned Big Ten Player of the Year hon- 
ors and the Illini won the BigTen Tournament 
championship lor the first time. 

Bill Sell left in March to take over as coach .it 
Kansas, paving the way tor Bruce Weber to be 
named the 1 6th Illinois head coach on April 30, 
2003. Weber armed in Champaign after directing 
the Southern Illinois Salukis for five seasons. 



Weber's inagural season directing the Orange and 
Blue was magical, as he became just the third coach 
in 109 years of BigTen basketball to win an out- 
right conference championship in his first season. 
The llhni had to win its final 10 games of the regu- 
lar season to clinch sole possession of the title, with 
six of those wins coming away from the Assembly 
Hall. Weber also guided Illinois to its first NCAA 
Tournament victor)' over a higher seeded team, 
when the No. 5 Illini defeated No. 4 Cincinnati in 
the second round of the tournament. The Illini fin- 
ished the year with a record of 26-7 and advanced 
to the NCAA Sweet Sixteen for the third time in 
the last four years.

BOARD OF 
TRUSTEES 



The Board of" Trustees of the 
University of Illinois exercises final 
authority over the policies and gov- 
ernance of all three campuses of the 
University (Chicago, Springfield, 
Urbana-Champaign), within limits 
fixed by the Illinois Constitution 
and state law. 

There are nine statewide trustees 
appointed by the governor. Each 
serves for six years. Their terms are 
staggered, with three expiring every 
two years. All trustees serve without 
pay. The governor is also an ex offi- 
cio member of the board, with a 
vote. 

In addition, three students, one each 
from the campuses of Chicago, 
Springfield, and Urbana- 
Champaign, serve single-year terms 
on the board. 

Trustees elect their own chair annu- 
ally in January. The chair for 2004 
is Lawrence C. Eppley.

UNIVERSITY ADMINISTRATION 




PRESIDENT 

JAMES J. STUKEL_ 



James J. Stukel is in his 1 1th year as presi- 
dent of the University of Illinois. Since 
becoming the University's 15th chief execu- 
tive officer, Stukel has taken his four-point 
plan to thousands of Illinois citizens, includ- 
ing alumni and friends of the University, 
through community visits and special events 
in Illinois and several states. 

The first point of the Stukel plan is to strengthen the connec- 
tions between the University and the people of Illinois, in a redefin- 
ition of the UI's traditional land-grant obligations. The second is to 
upgrade students' educational experience through smaller classes 
and best use of the educational technology. Third is to cut costs 
where possible, stress productivity and create a positive, business- 
like administration that reassures taxpayers, tuition-payers and pri- 
vate donors that their money is being used efficiently. And fourth is 
to maintain the highest quality in a niche filled by relatively few 
U.S. Universities - basic and applied research. 

For four years before becoming president, Stukel served as chan- 
cellor and chief executive officer of the University of Illinois at 
Chicago, leading UIC into the first rank of research universities. 

Stukel has been part of the University of Illinois family since 
enrolling in graduate school in 1962. He spent 23 years on the 
Urbana-Champaign campus as an administrator, engineering pro- 
fessor and researcher. He then moved to UIC, spending one year as 
vice chancellor for research and five years as executive vice chancel- 
lor and vice chancellor for academic affairs before assuming the

as Head Football Coach Ron Turner, who led 
the Illini to a Big Ten Championship in 2001, 
an astounding 10-2 record and a bid to the 
Bowl Championship Series. 

— Hiring Illinois Head Basketball Coach 
Bruce Weber, who led his first Illini squad to 
an outright Big Ten title and Sweet 16 finish in 
the NCAA Tournament. The red-hot Illini bas- 
ketball squad has won three conference titles in 
four years. 

— Landing nationally recognized men's 
tennis coach Craig Tiley, who, in 2003, led the 
Illini to the school's first NCAA team title 
since 1989. Illinois swept the field at the 
national championships, taking the team, sin- 
gles (Amer Delic) and doubles (Rajeev 
Ram/Brian Wilson) titles. Tiley's squads have 
won eight straight regular-season Big Ten titles 
and made eight conseutive trips to the NCAA 
Tournament. In 2000, the duo of Graydon 
Oliver and Gary Franklin won the NCAA dou- 
bles title. 

— Extending the contract of nationally 
prominent wrestling coach Mark Johnson, who 
has engineered Top- 10 finishes for the program 
eight times in his 1 1-year career, including a 
fifth-place finish at the 2001 NCAA 
Championships. This past season, Illinois cap- 
tured a share of the Big Ten regular-season 
title. The Illini have crowned seven national 
champions since 1995 and five in the last 
seven years. Johnson became the schools all- 
time winningest coach, accomplishing the feat 
in only nine years at the helm. 

— Bringing the Chicago Bears to central 
Illinois and Memorial Stadium. With a part- 
nership formed in the fall of 2001, the Bears 
played the full 2002 season and exhibition 
games in 2003-a total of 12 games— in 
Champaign while Soldier Field underwent 
construction. With that partnership came 
funds that refurbished the Irwin football com- 
plex, including new locker and meeting rooms 
as well as a training room and upgrades to the 
coaches' offices. 

— Guenther also hired former Illini and 
member of the 1988 Big Ten Championship 
golf squad, Mike Small, who, in his first four 
seasons in charge of the men's team, has twice 
led the team to the NCAA Championships. 
The Illini have taken second in the Big Ten the 
past three seasons. Small is also continuing to 
represent Illinois on the professional circuit, 
playing in PGA Tour events like the Western 
Open and the PGA Championship. 

— The Illinois track and field programs 
have also excelled at both the national and 
international level. Former lllmi hurdler 



Perdita Felicien won three NCAA titles in two 
years. Felicien was named the 2001 and 2003 
National Female Track Athlete of the Year, fol- 
lowing her All-America performances in the 
100-meter hurdles. She went on to win two 
World Championships and represented 
Canada in the 2004 Olympics. She is the 1 1 th 
athlete head coach Gary Winckler has sent to 
Olympic competition. Among those standouts 
were 1996 bronze medalist Tonja Buford- 
Bailey in the 400-meter hurdles. He has also 
tutored 172 AJI-Americans at Illinois. 

— First-year head men's track coach Wayne 
Angel got off on the right foot, instructing a 
pair of athletes, Adrian Walker and Abe Jones, 
to All-America honors in rhe 400-meter hur- 
dles. 

— The Illinois men's gymnastics program 
under head coach Yoshi Hayasaki is ranked 
among the Top- 10 in the nation year in and 
year out. This year was no exception with the 
team placing third nationally while hosting the 
2004 NCAA Championships and crowning 
five Ail-Americans. Justin Spring and Bob 
Rogers won NCAA titles and helped lead 
Hayasaki to his fifth Big Ten Championship. 

— Guenther also brought back former 
assistant coach Don Hardin in 1996 to lead 
the Illini volleyball squad, which has advanced 
to the NCAA Tournament four times, includ- 
ing the Sweet 16 in 1998 and 2003. Hardin 
was named Big Ten Coach of the Year in 2003 
after leading the Illini to its winningest season 
in more than a decade and a final national 
ranking of 1 5th. 

— Head Coach Terri Sullivan took her 
2004 squad to the NCAA Regionals for the 
second straight year after posting a school- 
record 45 wins. The Illini were ranked as high 
as No. 17 nationally. 

— In just the seventh year of the program's 
existence, soccer has taken off with three 
NCAA Tournament appearances in 2000, 
2001 and 2003. With a second-place regular 
season Big Ten finish in 2004, the team went 
on to record its first Big Ten Tournament title. 

— Theresa Grentz has led the women's bas- 
ketball program to national prominence with 
NCAA Tournament appearances in five of her 
10 seasons with the Illini, including two trips 
to the Sweet 16. She has tutored two AJI- 
Americans during her tenure at Illinois and 
had the school's first WNBA draft pick in 
Iauja Catchings. 

— Illinois women's tennis coach Sujay 
Lama has also returned his program to the 
national spotlight with trips to the NCAA 
Fournament in five of his first six seasons with

the Illini. 

— Under baseball head coach Richard 
"Itch" Jones, the Illini have made two trips to 
the NCAA Regionals in the last eight years 
with a close loss to Florida in the regional 
finals in 1998, leaving the Illini just two outs 
from the College World Series. Illinois has 
donned three Big Ten Pitchers of the Year in 
the last seven years. 

— The Illinois swimming and diving pro- 
gram has tutored six current and former Illini 
who participated tor the U.S. in the 2000 
Olympic Trials, including U.S. National Team 
member Jessica Aveyard, who swam at the 
2002 World Championships. 

— Signing an exclusive $7.5 million agree- 
ment with Nike as one ot onlv 13 Nike insti- 
tutions in the United States. 

— Christening new facilities like the 
Ubben Basketball Practice Facility, Irwin 
Indoor Football Facility and the Bielfeldt 
Athletic Administration Building. 

— Overseeing the construction and open- 
ing of the $2.1 million Irwin Academic Center, 
providing 600 student-athletes with a state-of- 
the-art, convenient academic center to reach 
their full potential as students. 

Under Guenther's leadership, Illinois has 
steadily improved its performance on the field 
and in the classroom. Off the field, Illinois stu- 
dent-athletes have continued to benefit from 
outstanding academic service programs, match- 
ing the overall campus grade point average and 
producing nearly 100 Academic All-Big Ten 
award winners annually in all sports. Guenther 
has also spearheaded a revolution for funding 
for championship-level programs and facilities 
as the Division of Intercollegiate Athletics has 
opened necessary additional revenue streams 
totaling more than $3 million through work- 
ing partnerships with corporate sponsors and 
management ot the Illini Sports Radio 
Network. 

Guenther's aggressive plan to make the 
Division of Intercollegiate Athletics a valuable 
and enthusiastic partner in the overall educa- 
tion, research and service mission of the 
University has begun to pav dividends in the 
21st century. 

Now in his fourth decade with the 
University of Illinois, Guenther was the Most 
Valuable Player on the 1966 Illinois football 
squad under Head Coach Pete Elliott. He was 
a second-team All-Big Ten selection at offen- 
sive guard, also earning first-team Academic 
All-Big Ten honors and recognition as the 
University's outstanding senior in physical 
education. Guenther earned his bachelor of sci-

DIVISION OF INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS 



The Division of Intercollegiate Athletics (DIA) 
was chartered in 1892 as a not-for-profit corporation 
of the State of Illinois. It was charged with oversee- 
ing and conducting the University's intercollegiate 
athletic programs and associated support services, 
and operated as a separate entity. 

After the state legislature voted in June 1989 to 
bring UI athletics within the University proper, the 
DIA assumed the functions and responsibilities of 
the Athletic Association. The Division of Inter- 
collegiate Athletics began operations officially July 1, 
1989, and now, more than a century after University 
of Illinois athletics began, the mission is still to ac- 
hieve excellence both in the classroom and in sport 
competition. 

The director of athletics is the divisions chief 
executive officer, and reports directly to the chancel- 
lor of the Urbana-Champaign campus. The chancel- 
loi has final amhontv regarding the athletic program 
in all areas except for budget and major appoint- 
ments. Those decisions rest with the University of 
Illinois Board of Trustees. 

The Athletic Board serves the DIA in an adviso- 
ry capacity. It is composed of 18 members, (nine fac- 
ulty, five alumni, three students and one trustee); 
and the three non-voting (ex-officio) members from 
the University administration. The faculty and stu- 
dent members are nominated by the Urbana- 
Champaign Senate and selected bv the chancellor. 

The Division of Intercollegiate Athletics does 
not receive state tax dollars and over the years has 
been able to fully fund the NCAA maximum allow- 
able number of athletic scholarships for student-ath- 
letes in each of its sports programs, as well as to hire 
excellent coaches and maintain and upgrade its facili- 
ties, staying on par with the best major collegiate 
programs across the nation. 

This has been accomplished through revenues 
derived from the following major sources: gate 
receipts from football and mens basketball; television 
and radio rights fees for those two sports and corpo- 
rate sponsorships and donations to the I FUND. 
The I FUND contributions provide the maximum 
allowable number of scholarships in the 19 men's 
and women's sports at an average annual cost of 
approximately 512,000 for in-state student-athletes 
and about 518,000 for those from outside Illinois. 

FACILITIES 

The Division of Intercollegiate Athletics utilizes and 
maintains 14 facilities for competition and the 
administration of 19 sports. The facilities include 
Memorial Stadium, Assembly Hall, Huff Hall, 
Illinois Field, the Outdoor Track and Field and 
Soccer Stadium, the Armorv, Atkins Tennis Center, 
Kenney Gym, the Universitv of Illinois Orange and 
Blue Golf Courses, the Bielfeldt Athletic 
Administration Building, the Ubben Basketball 
Practice Facility'. Eichelberger Field Softball 
Complex, the Irwin Indoor Practice Facility and the

added to the stadium in 2002 was a state-of-the-art 
video scoreboard as well as photo panels that adorn 
the North endzone. 

Completed in 2000 was the construction of the 
SI 2.5 million indoor football practice facility, locat- 
ed just east of the current football complex and lock- 
er room. The football practice field opens directly 
onto the East Outdoor Practice Field. 

In 1996, more than 100 members of the DIA 
staff moved into the Bielfeldt Athletic 
Administration Building, located on the east-west 
axis between the Atkins Tennis Center and the 
Assembly Hall. The facility houses DIA coaches, 
administration and staff including the I FUND, the 
Varsity "I" Association, accounting and personnel, 
athletic public relations, marketing and compliance. 

The Ubben Basketball Practice Facility opened 
in the fall of 1998 and features practice courts for 
men's and women's basketball, offices and meeting 
rooms, training and equipment facilities, strength 
and conditioning and locker rooms. 

In 1992, the DIA completed an $18 million 
renovation project on Memorial Stadium, replacing 
the main and balcony stands on the east and west 
sides of the Stadium. 



It has been a busy two decades for facility con- 
struction at Illinois as the Atkins Tennis Center 
opened in 1991, featuring six indoor and eight out- 
door lighted courts, along with a pro shop and bal- 
cony viewing areas. The Atkins Tennis Center has 
hosted the Big Ten Championships, the NCAA 
Regionals and numerous professional tournaments 
and is also a resource for the entire Champaign- 
Urbana tennis community. 

Illinois Field, the home of the 111 in i baseball 
squad, and the Outdoor Track Stadium have also 
seen construction upgrades, adding lights to both 
facilities and expanding the track stadium to acco- 
modate Illinois women's soccer matches. The 
Outdoor Track and Soccer Stadium also includes 
future plans for seating for 8,000 and a permanent 
press box. 

The indoor facility for track and field, the 
Armon", underwent a Si. 2 million renovation in 
2003 to improve the infrastructure of the track and 
floor. 

In 1998, the Irwin Academic Center opened on 
campus, providing UI student-athletes with state-of- 
the-art computer study areas, conference rooms, 
career planning and placement and other academic 
programs all under one roof. The Irwin Center is 
utilized by over 600 student-athletes on an annual 
basis. 

The Illini men's and women's basketball squads 
compete in the Assemblv Hall, which has undergone 
more than SI 1 million in facility upgrades in recent 
years, including new locker rooms, training rooms, 
meeting and dining areas, storage and other 
improvements designed to showcase Illinois basket- 
ball. The newest feature in the Assembly Hall is a 
$1.7 million video replay board that was installed 
prior to the 2004-05 season. 

Huff Hall, the home for Illinois men's basketball 
and the famed IHSA "March Madness" state basket- 
ball tournament from 1925-63, has undergone over 
$1.5 million in construction since 1990 and is the 
home for Illini volleyball, wrestling and gymnastics. 
This past summer Huff saw its locker rooms and 
weight rooms remodeled. 

This past fall, the DIA broke ground on a state- 
of-the-art indoor golf practice faility. Future plans 
also call for a multi-purpose indoor sport building as 
well as expansion of the Atkins Tennis Center to 
allow the 2003 national champion men's team to 
host NCAA Championship events.

For the 28th consecutive year, the Big Ten 
Conference led all NCAA conferences in 
home attendance for men's basketball. The 
league's attendance mark in 2000-01 
(2,342,022) established an NCAA record, 
breaking the previous record from 1999- 
2000 (2,255,913), also set by the Big Ten. 
Last year, the Big Ten placed six teams in 
the Top 25 nationally for attendance (ILLI- 
NOIS, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan State, 
Ohio State, Wisconsin). 

POSTSEASON PLAY 

At least five teams have advanced to the 
NCAA Tournament 19 times in the past 20 
seasons ... ILLINOIS advanced to the 
Sweet Sixteen in 2004 ... A Conference 
school has advanced to the Final Four in 
four of the past six seasons . . . The Big Ten 
is one of only two conferences in the nation 
to advance at least one program to the 
Regional Finals in five of the last six seasons 
... In addition to ILLINOIS, Wisconsin 
and Michigan State earning spots in the Big 
Dance last season, Michigan, Iowa and 
Purdue finished their seasons with berths in 
the NIT with the Wolverines claiming the 
NIT championship. 

Since the NCAA Tournament expanded to 
64 teams in 1985, the Big Ten has recorded 
a 166-109 mark, with champions coming

during the 2004-05 season. Also, all 88 
intraconference games will be televised for
